The Operation Forest Sanity troops rescued three kidnap victims, including an 85-year-old woman during fighting patrols in three Local Government Areas of Kaduna State.

In a statement issued on Wednesday in Kaduna by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, added that the troops destroyed several bandits’ camps during the operation.

“As the bandits fled into the forest, they left behind four motorcycles recovered by the troops.“The troops burned down the dozens of camps in sight and upon scouring the area, the troops found two male kidnapped victims.“They also discovered corpses of two unidentified female victims who had been killed by the bandits,” Aruwan said.

The corpses were removed while the rescued victims were reunited with their families, after first aid was administered on one of them who was carrying an injury.

The commissioner further explained that the 85-year-old woman was rescued in Kuzo general area and was examined and debriefed before being reunited with her family.

The troops dislodged the bandits’ camps and recovered two damaged AK-47 rifles along with three mobile phones, some military uniforms and materials for making explosives.
