The Police  Command in Zamfara State says its Tactical Operatives Team foiled bandits' planned attacks on some communities in Dansadau Emirate in Maru Local Government Area.

The command also said that some weapons were recovered from the bandits when the police carried out a preemptive strike between 11 and 14 November.

This is contained in a statement on Wednesday in Gusau by the spokesman of the police command, Muhammad Shehu.

“The operatives responded promptly and moved to the location with a view of repelling the attack,” he wrote.

“A serious gun battle ensued between the bandits and the operatives which forced the hoodlums to flee into the forest with possible gunshot wounds.”

The recovered weapons include two AK-47 rifles and 35 rounds of live ammunition.
