Troops of the Two Brigade of the Nigeria Army have raided gunmen hideout and ended their activities along a major highway in Rivers State.

A statement by the Brigade on Sunday noted that the group of gunmen operated Tai Local Government Area (LGA) of the state in south-south Nigeria.

The attackers were said to have shot sporadically and harassed innocent motorists.

The Army officials promptly intervened by engaging the gunmen, killing two of them and thereafter, re-opened the road.

Items recovered from the group during the operation include: an AK 47 rifle, one FN rifle, a G3 rifle and three Dane guns.

Also recovered were two AK 47 magazines, an FN magazine, two G3 magazines, a saw and 180 rounds of assorted ammunition.

While some of the gunmen escaped with gunshot wounds on Saturday, the Army asked residents to report anyone suspected to be having gunshot wounds to the nearest security agencies.

They urged the people to go about their lawful activities, saying normalcy had been restored in Tai LGA.

The Brigade reminded the populace to continue to provide security agencies with useful information to combat crime. (Channels TV)
