Terrorists Kidnap Soldier’s Wife, Others In Fresh Kaduna Attack

Wives Of 19 soldiers killed in an ambush by bandit terrorists during an attack on the convoy of the Deputy Governor of Kebbi State, Samaila Dabai, have protested the unfortunate incident.

In a video posted on Twitter by ZagazOlaMakama, the late soldiers wives and some sympathisers had stormed the house of the Commanding Officer of the 223 Batallion.

Naija News had reported that Dabai’s convoy was attacked on Wednesday in Kanya, Waje District of Danko/Wasagu Local Government Area of the state.

The deputy governor was said to be visiting some areas in the state affected by bandits activities when his convoy ran into a large number of bandits operating in Kanya community.

This prompted Dabai and some soldiers in his convoy to attempt to save the villagers from the bandits but a gun battle ensued in the process.

One of the security aides attached to the deputy governor, ASP Idris Libata, alongside 18 soldiers were killed during the gun battle while the bandits escaped with injuries and wounds.

In an interview with Channels Television, Dabai said the bandits were looting shops, houses, and rustling cattle in the area when he arrived in the village.

Dabai said he advised his security team to pursue the bandits out of the community so that they could pull them along and separate them from the villagers.

He, however, commended the brave efforts of the 223 Battalion and vigilante groups in repelling the attack, which could have been more deadly.

The deputy governor said the criminals had stormed the area with high-grade weapons and mingled with villagers in order to hide their identities.
