According to the statement, three AK47 rifles, three AK47 chargers, two motorcycles
and two mobile phones were recovered during the operation carried out in the Cikun Municipality of the state.

The statement said: “Military authorities informed the Kaduna state government that troops neutralized three terrorists during patrols along the Telele-Sabon Gida highway in Chikun LGA.

“According to operational comments, the troops ambushed the assembly point of suspected terrorists on the route.

“As expected, the outlaws approached the troop position and entered the firing range, after which they engaged vigorously.

“The criminals returned fire, but were overpowered by the troops after a short firefight. Three terrorists were neutralized in the exchange.”

The commissioner revealed that Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i had expressed satisfaction with the operational comments.
