Operatives of the Zamfara State Police Command have apprehended a notorious commander of bandits, Bello Rugga, and also eliminated five others during a raid in Gummi Local Government Area of the state.

Rugga, alongside twenty one others, were paraded at the headquarters of the command in Gusau, the state capital on Saturday, October 2,2021, by the Zamfara State Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Elkanah.

According to Elkanah," On October 1, 2021, Police Tactical Operatives on Anti-banditry Operation around Gummi axis acted on Intelligence report, stormed Gidan Bita, Malakar and Kagara forest and arrested one notorious bandits' commander, Bello Rugga.

"Rugga was in charge of Gummi, Gidan Bita, Malanjara, and Kagara forest in Gummi LGA of the state. He has coordinated series of attacks in the area that led to the unwarranted killings of Innocent people and kidnapping of many others for ransom".

The Police Commissioner explained that Rugga had many bandits under his command at the time of his arrest, disclosing that AK -47 riffles and ammunition were recovered from him.

This is a good development. We therefore urge our security operatives to further intensify efforts towards ridding the country of these bandits and other undesirable elements.
