clash: Security beefed up around Abuja.

Security has been beefed up around the Federal Capital
City, FCT, Abuja, following the clash between bandits and troops last week.

Competent military sources confirmed last night that
troops of the Nigerian Army, comprising mainly Army Headquarters Garrison and Guards Brigade, have been put on red alert to avert a revenge attack by bandits/terrorists whose members were repelled earlier last week, in a failed attempt to infiltrate the Federal
Captal territory through the Suleija/Zuma axis.

This is just as it emerged that the death toll of soldiers
who were felled by the terrorists in the ambush attack had risen to 16.

Vanguard had reported that during the heavy gunfight
that ensued between the bandits in the forest, where they were converging before troops of 102 Guards Battalion confronted them, two officers and six soldiers were killed, while about 12 other soldiers were wounded before a reinforcement, led by the commanding
officer in five Hilux vans stormed the forest and neutralized many of the bandits.

However, sources have disclosed that some of the soldiers
who sustained gunshot wounds in sensitive parts of the body and were rushed to several military medical facilities in the FCT did not survive, bringing the number of casualties so far to about 16.

Vanguard was told that following an intelligence report
that the bandits may be hatching a plot to carry out a revenge attack, all entry and exit points of the FCT have witnessed troops carrying out reconnaissance patrols.

Specifically troops have been deployed to villages and
area councils located along the Abuja/Lokoja expressway namely Abaji, Kwali and Gwagwalada Area Councils while the Suleja/Zuma axis has been beefed up by battle-ready soldiers.

In this regard, soldiers have resumed cordon and search
operations at Giri/Gwagwalada axis close to the University of Abuja while the same applies at the Zuba/Suleja axis.

One source disclosed that following last Tuesday’s bomb
attack of train plying the Abuja/Kaduna railway line in which many people were killed and many others kidnapped at Rijana, and the assessment visit to the scene by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Faruk Yahaya, a directive had been issued for the establishment
of a Forward Operations Base FOB at Rijana.

One source, who gave a further insight into the deployments, said: “We’re deploying
to the communities located along the Abuja/Lokoja highways and all exit/entry points into the FCT we have intelligence that these bandits/criminal elements are trying to establish their bases after excessive bombings of their enclaves in the North East and
North West.”They want to take advantage of the rural communities in the FCT to establish and launch attacks and kidnap innocent persons.

“This is why for some time, cases of kidnapping have been frequent in the FCT, especially
in the communities located along the Abuja/Lokoja highways and this necessitated the deployment of troops.

“Additionally, you know we are in an election season and criminals would do anything
to destabilize the relative peace in the nation’s capital with their evil activities which they have been trying for some time without success.”

“In particular, areas of interest to the military and other security agencies where
suspected criminal elements are believed to be hibernating include Zuba, Madalla, Gwagwalada, Bwari, Nyayan, Kugbo, Gwagwa, Mpape, Karmo, Kubwa kuje, Masaka, Apo, Masaka, Gudu as well as some major markets in the city and troops area are taking no chances.”

Efforts to get authorities of the Defense and Army headquarters to comment on the developments
through phone calls proved abortive as the calls were not picked up.


attack communities on Kaduna-Zaria road near Nigerian Military bases.

Terrorists locally dubbed as bandits stormed Rigachikun
and Barakallahu villages along Kaduna-Zaria road, shooting sporadically on Tuesday night.

The communities are located between the Jaji Military
Cantonment and Nigerian Air Force Base.

According to Muhammed-Bello Buhari, his cousins staying
in the area had to hide inside the wardrobe and under the beds.

For fear of being attacked or kidnapped, nobody in the
area went to the mosques for morning prayer on Wednesday.

The Wednesday incident followed the abduction of 11 persons
by bandits who attacked Angwar Maji community at Jere town in Kagarko Local Government Area of the state.

The attack occurred on Sunday night at the community
located close to the Abuja-Kaduna Highway and the Kaduna- Bwari Road.

Residents said the terrorists struck barely a day after
the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, announced the deployment of additional troops to the Abuja-Kaduna Highway and surrounding communities.

Also on Sunday, bandits sacked a military base in Polwire
village in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area, killing 11 soldiers.
