The troops of the Nigerian Army have killed the bandits responsible for the attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) and kidnapping of students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna State.
This was disclosed via a statement issued on Saturday by the Kaduna State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan.

The leader of the bandits was identified as Boderi Isiya, while his second in command was identified simply as Musti.

Aruwan stated that Musti and several other bandits were killed by the troops, while Boderi escaped being neutralised by the soldiers at the Tollgate general area in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

He noted that the bandits were also responsible for the abduction of the Emir of Bungudu and several other citizens in Kaduna State last year.

The commissioner added: “Corpses and weapons were recovered at the scene, while some of the terrorists eventually died from bullet wounds.

“Boderi’s deadly second in command, one Musti, was among those identified to have been eliminated, alongside one Yellow Mai-Madrid and one Dan-Katsinawa, with others yet to be identified. Some of the terrorists are battling with life-threatening wounds.

“Musti and Boderi were responsible for the security breach at the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna, and kidnappings of students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, the Emir of Bungudu and several other citizens last year.

“The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, praised the troops for this commendable feat under the leadership of the General Officer Commanding, One Division, Major General T.A. Lagbaja, being the latest of notable breakthroughs recorded since he took command.

“The Kaduna State Government will keep the public updated on further developments,” Aruwan stated.
