Troops of Operation Thunder Strike, a subsidiary of Operation Accord, have rescued three persons kidnapped in their farm by armed bandits in Gwazunu village, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna state.
Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche said the troops rescued the victims after receiving “credible intelligence on the kidnap of some people by armed bandits from their farm.”
He said the troops were deployed immediately to the scene and engaged the bandits with effective firepower.
“The bandits escaped in disarray with gunshot wounds thereby abandoning the kidnapped victims. All the 3 victims were successfully rescued unhurt and have been reunited with their families,” Enenche said.
