The Kaduna State Government has disclosed that troops of ‘Operation Safe Haven’ successfully prevented an attack on Gidan Zaki town in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of the State.
Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement issued in Kaduna on Sunday, said some bandits planned the attack.
Aruwan said but for the prompt action of the troops who were stationed in the Southern Kaduna general area, the attack would have led to loss of lives.
Referring to a report, he said the bandits invaded farmlands in the village, and destroyed crops, using cutlasses.
“The bandits went on to vandalise the home of a resident of the village.
“They also damaged a nearby vehicle, before storming a telephone charging shop belonging to another person, carting away telephones and chargers,” he said.
