Exposed: Nigerian Troops Arrest Bandit In Possession Of Military Kits

The Nigerian Army along the Mokwa-Jebba Road have arrested a fleeing bandit during a stop and search operation along the road.

The army’s spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Mr Nwachukwu said that the “vigilant” troops spotted an occupant of the vehicle, who claimed to be “Sgt. Aminu Sule.”

He added that the suspect had a pair of camouflage, military boots, a knife and substance suspected to be charms.

Nwachukwu noted that after closely scrutinising the suspect, he was discovered to be fleeing from the ongoing operations in Niger State to scape through.

He said, “The suspect was immediately apprehended and handed over to the police at Mokwa for further investigation.

“The heat on bandits and other criminal elements in Niger State has caused them to start fleeing to supposed safe havens. Members of the public, particularly around Niger and contiguous states are therefore enjoined to be vigilant and report any suspected movement of fleeing bandits to security agencies.
