The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai flagged off Operation SAHEL SANITY on the 6 July 2020 as part of activities of the Nigerian Army Day Celebration 2020, during which the Nigerian Army Super Camp IV Faskari in Katsina State was established. The aim of the operation is to support Operation HADARIN DAJI in stemming the tides of the activities of armed bandits, cattle rustlers, kidnappers, incessant killings and other sundry crimes in the North-West zone of the country. These acts of criminalities orchestrated by the bandits had before now crippled the agricultural, social and economic activities of the people of this zone.


The people of the North-West Zone felt immediate impact of the operation with the tremendous successes achieved within the short period of time. The gallant troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY within the period under review has carried out series of clearance operations, ambushes and other aggressive and confidence building patrols within Sokoto, Katsina and Zamfara States.


These operations has led to the rescue of kidnapped victims, recovery of rustled cattles, arrest of suspected armed bandits, arrest of bandits informants and collaborators. Furthermore, there were recoveries of large cache of arms and ammunition as well as recovery of motorcycles and other bandits logistics within the period.

So far, in all the operations conducted, 80 armed bandits have been neutralized, a total of 943 cows, 633 sheep/rams recovered; 33 suspected bandits arrested; 7 AK47 Riffles, 1 GPMG and 16 Dane guns captured; 17 kidnapped victims rescued and 14 bandits informants and collaborators arrested. Also several bandits camps including the notorious Dangote Triangle and their logistics bases were destroyed by troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY.


There is no gainsaying therefore that within the first month of Operation SAHEL SANITY from 1-31 July 2020, troops have recorded several successes in line with the aim of the operation.

The gallant troops continue to dominate volatile areas with confidence building patrols, ambushes and clearance operations to deny the bandits and other criminal elements freedom of action. This achievement is further evident by the active resumption of farming, social and economic activities by the locals with reduced fear of threats in their localities.

The Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has commended the troops for their gallantry, successes and the professionalism exhibited within the short period of Operation SAHEL SANITY. He urges them not to rest on their oars. He further extends Sallah goodwill message to the people of North West reassuring them people of the of the Nigerian Army’s commitment to restore peace in the zone.

But if Boko Haram comes and says they killed 1000 Nigerian soldiers, you guys will treat it as confirmed news.You won't even wait for video or audio...it must be true because Shekau and company are always telling the truth, and don't do propaganda ever (Sarcasm fully intended)

The way we play opposition in this country....it has gotten to a point where bandits and boko haram are believed before our millitary.

(And yes, it happened when PDP was in power, many opposition people then believed Boko before our army, and it isn'tright.).

Me, I think it happened. I also think that beating the bandits isn't a one day thing.It involves good governance, good governance. It also involves modernizing our farming, bringing the North up to date, ending roaming around with cattle, improving our railways, etc etc. Sorry no instant solutions.

Instead of blasting our army, blast Buhari, Aso Rock, the governors and company for not doing anything much about the causes of this bandit issue.The Army can only fix one part of the problem. Most of it is up to the politicans.Especially the Northern politicans.

Don't believe Boko propaganda

Before any one of you start...I am not in APC, or PDP, or any of the parties.

Don't just blame us for not believing Nigerian army, we've been fed with many lies several times, how do you expect us to believe in them, when they lie to us severally. Blame the Nigerian government and army for making citizens to lose interest and trust in them.

Criticse your government.

The Army can only do X. It cannot sort out the problems that led to them doing x.

That's where I tell you people to form parties, vote out the corrupt, and so on. But on this site...I see people who write good hard hitting comments on corruption in APC, and then shout God bless my corrupt politican.

Am all for APC going out of power...but the problem is, the people you will replace them with are no better. Still....something has to change....we can't continue like this. APC or PDP ruoling us.

Do they do that all the time?

Boko , indeed many of these Islamist gorups are just as good at the propaganda game as is the government.

I daresay the Army lies....but at the same time, I won't be rushing to be believing a Boko propagndaist too as well. I have been following terrorist groups via current affairs for years. Not an expert, but terror groups can be very very dubious.

Not just government only, but Nigerian army leaders also, many of them derives a lot from the insurgency going on and didn't want it to end anytime soon.
And about the parties, both political parties are the same, selfish and self centered, let me say average Nigerians are the same, individuals only care about themselves, I'm even afraid of people who are going to replace them, people that already have the mindset of eating the national cake by their selves too.

Guriella warfare is a different kind of warfare. The enemy operates by the rule...If you don't lose, you win. That's why the BRITISH army spent over 30 years trying to defeat the Irish Republican Army in Northern Ireland. (and the only way they ended that war was by the polticans begining to do their jobs and fix the causative factors)

Yes, I know....but even then, as one quote I read somewhere...work within the system. The UK, US, etc were once as bad as Nigeria politcally wise. I guess things changed because the ordinary man had no where else to run.

I'm baffled about the individuals of Nigeria, most Nigerians mentality is nothing to speak of, the mindset is so corrupt, that's why you see scammer being multiplied day in, day out,. The level of corruption in this country goes beyond government only.

You meant to say bandits killed 80 Nigerian troops?

Not even a single carcass of the bandits have I seen undecided

At least we used to see the corpses of Nigerian soldiers on a bloody day

Not true whatsoever. These independent sources just agree with Boko Haram without any evidence either. That is exactly what they want you to believe. Clearly you are unaware that foreign countries want Nigeria to fall. How did bandits get AK-47s tell me how does Boko Haram still have so much weapons and ammo, it doesn’t make sense. Bandits started once the US drone bases in west Africa finished construction. If we continue like this Nigeria will become Libya, and none of us want that to happen do we. A lot of media are controlled by the government, look at BBC and amnesty they are both run by governments. One officially and one secretly, added to that Boko Haram has repeated photos over 10 times but you still believe them. I pray for Nigerian like you, because the day that there are millions of you all Ofer Nigeria. And Nigeria splits or a President is assasinated when America and France invade the country, put in their own president and control the country how they want, don’t come crying back.

They are not on,y being killed by Christians this is how the media is trying to divide Nigeria through religious lines. It is both Muslims and Christians being killed by Boko Haram. Boko Haram have gotten Muslims girls to commit suicide bombings inside of mosques. It is not only Christians being killed stop spreading hate, deceit and propaganda.

remember when the president said Boko Haram have been defeated, some weeks ago, buratai said north east is now safe and free of any insurgent. be reminded that Nigerian army always deny the news of Boko Haram killing Nigerian soldiers. you know military has been lying Nigerians since, except that you want to deny the fact.

Futile effort as long as captured ones are criminally integrated to the society, government paying substantial amount to these criminals, corruption laden and ineffective service chiefs retained illegally, while the sponsors of these wicked exploit are treated like Kings.
