Troops clear bandits’ forests, recover valuable items in Taraba State 

Stanley Ihedigbo

In a strategic move to combat the menace of kidnapping and criminal activities in Taraba State, troops of the Six Brigade Nigerian Army/Sector 3 Operation WHIRL STROKE (OPWS) executed a decisive clearance operation.

The operation resulted in the successful destruction of multiple kidnappers’ camps and the recovery of valuable items in the Chinkai Forest of Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba State.
Acting on actionable intelligence reports detailing the continuous criminal activities by terrorist groups sheltering in the Chinkai Forest, troops of 93 Battalion Sub-Sector 3B OPWS launched the clearance operation. The troops meticulously combed through the dense forest areas notorious for harboring kidnappers’ camps, prompting the terrorists to flee upon sighting the advancing troops.
The operation led to the destruction of several makeshift structures linked to wanted kidnapping kingpins such as Isah, Shagari, Dogo, and Teller. During the operation, the troops recovered valuable items from the dismantled camps, including 12 mobile phones, 3 international passports, and various mystical charms utilized by the criminals.
This successful clearance operation demonstrates the unwavering commitment of 6 Brigade Nigerian Army/Sector 3 OPWS to confront insecurity headlong in Taraba State. The public is therefore urged to remain vigilant and cooperate with security agencies by promptly reporting any suspicious activities within their communities.
The Nigerian Army continues to prioritize the safety and security of all citizens, and operations such as this reaffirm our dedication towards eradicating criminal elements that threaten the peace and stability of Taraba State and the environs.
