PRESS RELEASE

​POLICE TACTICAL FORCES STORM ANSARU TERRORISTS’ CAMP
Neutralize over 250 terrorists and bandits

Special Operatives of Operation Puff Adder of the Nigeria Police backed by the Special Forces of the Police Airwing, in a daring offensive operation, stormed one of the largest operational camps of the Ansaru Terror Group (also housing other bandits and kidnappers) located in Kuduru Forest, Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State and successfully neutralized over 250 high-profile members of the Ansaru Terror Group.

The operation which commenced in the early hours of today, 5th February, 2020, was carried out by a combined team of operatives of Operation Puff Adder made up of the Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), Special Forces, Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Special Tactical Squad (STS) and Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). The operation was necessitated by actionable intelligence linking terror and criminal elements in the super camp to series of terror-related violence, kidnappings, gun-running, cattle rustling and other heinous crimes across the country.

Unfortunately, during the operation, a Police Bell helicopter, which provided aerial and intelligence cover for the ground troops came under attack from the bandits using sophisticated anti-aircraft rifles and GPMG. Commendably, the pilot and the co-pilot who demonstrated uncommon courage and expertise, successfully landed the aircraft at the Air Force Base, Kaduna without further incident. They were thereafter evacuated for medical treatment. Both officers who sustained non-life threatening injuries are currently receiving treatment and are in stable condition.
The Police helicopter has since been flown out of the Kaduna Air Force Base by Police Pilots en-route to Abuja.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police assures citizens of safety and sustained intelligence-led operations against bandits across the length and breadth of the nation. He has equally applauded the unparalleled bravery, commitment and dedication of the Police operatives currently conducting the special mission.

Great news !!!!!! How can over 250 Terrorist be in a camp and NIGERIANS Military will say they don't know where they are ..Kaduna state is almost like Somalia thanks to the poor irridentist sectarian leadership currently plaguing it ..

In 2023 if anybody comes to tell you to vote ElRufai make sure you stone them immediately , in just 4 years the man has allowed Kaduna state degenerate into Fallujah like status . Just see below how many people where kidnapped in that state in just January making Kaduna state the kidnap capital of the whole world

Where is the picture of neutralise bandits? Terrorists can only be defeated if we are able to separate politics, religion and ethnicity. Kudos to Yoruba leaders for speaking in one voice irrespective of religions and political affiliations. I am not talking about big mouth FFK and mumuric o.

Good news but why will they kill over 250 without making arrest etc to justify that those people are truly terrorist? No sane Nigerians should trust our police in this kind of situation. This is not just killing. Nothing gives me joy than seeing them arrested and go thru the normal justice routine.
I pray God accept the souls of the innocent among them and send the soul of the real terrorist to deep-deep Hell

Weldone to our policemen for this successfully mission

What's even surprising me the most is that the kidnappers have well known camps. They're not even running anymore.

Such brazen display of courage.. The govt should bury its head in shame

Ok so they deployed most intelligent and finest men of the NPF Kaduna unit for anti terrorism campaign... No wonder the ones at home can't even recognize and differentiate a sparkler from IED

God bless the sincere and faithful policemen
