Police Repel Armed Robbery Attack in Zamfara State, Nigeria

The Nigeria Police Force in Zamfara State repelled an armed robbery attack on Sunday along Gusau-Sokoto Road, near Dogon Karfe in Bakura LGA, Zamfara State, Nigeria

The standoff led to the killing of many bandits who engaged the police for about four hours.

According to a communique by state police spokesman SP Mohammed Shehu, the robbers planned to rob innocent commuters of their valuables but were valiantly repelled by police tactical operatives deployed to safeguard the road against any invasion by criminal elements.

Shehu disclosed that many bandits were fatally injured with some of them believed to have escaped with gun injuries. He further noted that the corpses of those killed have been properly taken care of.

The spokesman said the road is now cleared for motorists and other road users with rigorous confidence-building patrol being intensified to avert hitches.

Tactical operatives including special forces personnel are, however, still combing the surrounding forest to ensure that the fleeing assailants are either apprehended or neutralized.
