The army was determined to flush out the bandits and arrest individuals linked to the bandits in the northern states.

According to a video by TVC, the younger brother of former Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Dalhatu Attahiru Bafarawa, was allegedly caught supplying bandits with boots and Army uniforms.

The suspect simply identified as Habu revealed how he sold military uniforms and other things to the bandits in the three minutes video with conversation in Hausa.
