Benue/Nasarawa Operation Whirl Stroke: Soldiers Neutralise Armed Bandits by Kwanza: 10:04am On Sep 07
TROOPS OF OPERATION WHIRL STROKE NEUTRALIZE ARMED BANDITS, RECOVER ARMS AND AMMUNITION IN BENUE AND NASARAWA STATES

In continuation of the aggressive kinetic operations against armed banditry, cattle rustling and other sundry crimes in the North-Central zone, troops of Operation WHIRL STROKE have arrested 4 armed bandits and recovered arms and ammunition during two daring raids at identified bandits’ camps.

In one of the operations conducted on 6 September 2020, troops of Operation WHIRL STROKE deployed at Guma in Benue State and Keana in Nasarawa State conducted a dawn raid at identified armed bandits’ camp at Guma forest along the Benue-Nasarawa border following actionable intelligence reports on the location of the camp.

Adopting an aggressive posture and profile, the gallant troops stormed the location and engaged the bandits in a firefight, overwhelming them with superior fire. In the process, troops neutralized one bandit while others fled with gunshot wounds into the forest. Troops also recovered one AK-47 rifle, one AK-47 rifle magazine, one locally made pistol and 3 mobile phones at the scene while the camp was subsequently destroyed.

Similarly, troops of Sector 1 deployed at Gagbe in Gwer West Local Government Area of Benue State conducted another dawn raid on another suspected armed bandits’ hideout at Tse Agi in the general area.

The gallant troops stormed the hideout and apprehended 4 suspects at the scene while one AK 47 rifle, 2 AK-47 rifle magazines and 46 rounds of 7.62 mm special ammunition were also recovered at the location.

The hideout was subsequently destroyed while the suspects are currently being profiled after which they will be handed over to the appropriate prosecuting agency for further action.

The Military High Command appreciates the general public for their cooperation in providing credible information which has so far facilitated the successes of the operations. The Armed Forces of Nigeria assures that these offensives against the common enemies of this Nation will not cease until normalcy is restored to all the troubled zones of the Country.

Take no prisoner, your duty is to quickly send them to where they will spend eternity. If you keep them as prisoners, this govt will release them back and tell us they have repented, as though they conducted alter call for them.

Why not just put bullets in their brains
Re: Benue/Nasarawa Operation Whirl Stroke: Soldiers Neutralise Armed Bandits by Benesis: 3:22pm On Sep 07
1 gun 4 people

Armed Bandits you say?
Who remembers that song by M.I and some guy on the encounter with policemen, that shot and killed him and reported the gun down of a dangerous armed robber.

Must be the code name of the operation "WHIRL S̶T̶R̶O̶K̶E̶ SMOKE" Because things are foggy and blurry here.. They didnt even carry charms or daggers, common flat men walk around with charms and daggars, how much more 5 armed bandits.

But if they are really the culprits let them die, but everything looks a bit fishy here
