The DIG Operation said he was sent by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar Adamu to see the condition of the gallant troops who were injured during the operation that was carried out three days ago.

“And I’m very happy that what I saw was very satisfying as the injured men are very stable, even the doctor treating them said there is no need to worry as they are responding to treatment.

“The Inspector-General of Police is very disturbed, but I assure you that we will give them the best of treatment as we will still go into their issue to see how fast they can respond to treatment “Unfortunately, we lost another personnel which increased the number of death to two, whose names are Muhammad Abubakar and Sgt. Idris.

“It is a continuous operation as this is not the first one, it is just that this is a very special one because the police has woken up and are equal to the task of fighting every bandit in the country until it is cleared.

“Thirteen of the men were injured, four will be discharged today while the rest will continue to be under observation,” he said.

Speaking on the operation, the IGP said the Ansaru terrorists group have extended their tentacles to Birnin-Gwari and large area of Pandongari in Niger State too.

He noted that Wednesday’s assault on the terrorists camp in Kuduru is just the first of its kind, assuring that, many others will follow. (Daily Trust)
