69

Troops on exercise “Ayem Akpatuma” arrested two persons, Danasebe Gasama and Danjuma a.k.a. American in connection with the killings and uprising in Takum and Ussa Local Government Area of Taraba State.

This was disclosed in a press statement issued by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu

The two suspects were arrested at Takum following an intelligence that they were the coordinators of several attacks both on Fulani and the locals.

Preliminary investigation has further identified these two individuals as key players in the killings and uprising in the two Local Government Areas of the State.

Brigadier General Chukwu, therefore, urged the general public to always give useful and timely information to the security agency for prompt actions as such information led to the arrests.

In another development, troops of 72 Special Forces Battalion on 16 April 18 on Operation MESA at Yogbo in Guma Local Government Area of Benue state encountered about 20 militia herdsmen at Teguma village while on patrol.

Four of the militia herdsmen were neutralized during the encounter while others fled following superior gun power.

Items recovered include four AK 47 rifles, five 7.62mm rounds of ammunition and 28 rounds of 7.62 police special ammunition.

The Nigerian Army thereby restated its commitment and determination to rid the country of criminals and enemies of state.
