Three bandits arms suppliers who supplies arms to bandits operating in Kaduna, Zamfara, Katsina and Niger states have been arrested.
The police identified the notorious suspects as James Dungs and Oga Joseph from Plateau State. The third suspect Justine Oruadem was killed during the operation.
The suspects were arrested on Friday, March 26, by a combined team of the Federal Intelligence Bureau, FIB, Special Tactical Squad, STS, Tactical Intelligence Unit, TIU, and operatives of Operation Yaki attached to Kaduna State Police Command.
The suspects were trailed and intercepted at the Saminaka area of Kaduna state in a Toyota Highlander Jeep after the Force Intelligence Bureau got credible information that some armed men connecting Kaduna were heading for Niger and Zamfara states to carry out some deadly attacks.
It was gathered that upon sighting the police, the armed men opened fire, forcing the police to retaliate.
Some of the suspects escaped into the forest, but three were not lucky as they were brought down.
Some arms and ammunition were recovered from their vehicle. They include 8 SMG rifles, one Barretta pistol, 11 AK47 Magazines, 50 rounds of live ammunition.
The remains of the dead suspect have been deposited in Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital mortuary in Kaduna state.
