• Another Policeman Dies From Wednesday’s Attack On Helicopter
The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, has stated that more troubles await members of Ansaru terrorists group and bandits terrorising Birnin-Gwari area of Kaduna State.
Adamu stated this in Kaduna, yesterday, when he visited the troops injured in Wednesday’s attack on the Police operational helicopter in Kuduru village, Birnin Gwari Council.
Represented by the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in charge of Operation, Mr. AbdulMajeed Ali, the Police boss said Wednesday’s assault on the terrorists’ camp in Kuduru was just the first of its kind, assuring that many others would follow.
He, however, confirmed the loss of another injured personnel, Sgt. Idris, yesterday morning, bringing to two, the number of personnel lost by the Force, while 13 others were receiving medical attention at two medical facilities in Kaduna.
The DIG said he was sent by the IGP to ascertain the condition of the injured policemen, adding: “I am very happy that what I saw was very satisfying, as the injured men are very stable. Even the doctor treating them said there was no need to worry, as they were responding to treatment.
“The IGP is very disturbed, but I assure that we will give them the best of treatment, as we will still go into their issue to see how fast they can respond to treatment
“Unfortunately, we lost another personnel, which increased the number of deaths to two, that is, Muhammad Abubakar and Idris.
“It is a continuous operation, as this is not the first one; it is just that this is a very special one, because the Police has woken up and are equal to the task of fighting every bandit in the country until it is cleared.
“Thirteen of the men were injured, four will be discharged today, while the rest will continue to be under observation.”
Speaking on the operation, the IGP said the Ansaru terrorist group has extended its tentacles to Birnin-Gwari and a large area of Pandongari in Niger State, adding: “We have taken note of them for a very long time and we had put a lot of intelligence on them. ”
‘However, the operation in Kuduru happens to be the first in line up of our operations to wipe out terrorists from Birnin-Gwari. So, we want to assure Nigerians that very soon, Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road will be passable and Nigerians will have freedom of movement everywhere.”
