Troops intercept N60m ransom money, rescues kidnapped women, children

The Nigerian Armed Forces have made a major burst in the fight against banditry and terrorism in the country.

Joint troops have intercepted N60 million being taken to criminals as ransom for the freedom of captives.

The shocking angle is that some of the couriers nabbed are operatives of yet-to-be-disclosed security agencies.

The military, in intelligence-driven operations, also rescued kidnapped victims including women and children.

The assault conducted by a Nigerian Army squadron and Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Special Forces took out a number of the bandits.

The contingent is of the 271 NAF in Birnin Gwari and Army Forward Operating Base (FOB) in Gwaska, Kaduna.

“N60,000,000 in cash, petroleum products and sophisticated weapons, were recovered during the operations”, an operative told PRNigeria.

“We will refer the case of the arrested couriers, who have identifications with security agencies, to the Department of State Service (DSS) and Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) for further investigation.”
