BREAKING: Many feared dead as terror bandits flee into military camp in Niger

84

Terror bandits trying to flee from the ongoing military onslaught in Zamfara and Katsina states met their waterloo in the hands of soldiers at Maganda village near Allawa in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

The bandits, who were said to be escaping through the notorious Allawa Forest in their hundreds, ran into the military camp stationed at Alawa, and engaged the soldiers in a serious gun battle for several hours.

According to reports, one soldier was reportedly missing at the end of the gun battle.

It was also learnt that scores of the bandits were neutralised and several others escaped into the forest with bullets injuries.

Some of the bandits who escaped with serious bullets wounds are being trailed by the soldiers as the entire forest is being combed.

It was gathered that about six machine guns and a number of AK-47 riffles and bags of ammunitions were recovered from the bandits.

A source at Allawa community said, “In fact from the dead bodies that we saw, they look like foreigners, all of them are carrying long hair like women. They don’t have resemblance of Nigerians and they don’t know the terrain that was why they ran into the soldiers. They did not know that there is soldiers camp there.”

Bandits had in April invaded the Military Base in Alawa, and killed five soldiers and a mobile policeman.

The entire military camp was razed by the armed bandits who invaded the base about 3:00 am when soldiers had just returned to their base from an area patrol.
