On Wednesday 13th June 2018 at about 3pm, operatives of the Taraba State Command attached to Bali Division acting on actionable intelligence stormed the hideout of a gang of kidnappers who have been on our radar for some time.
The criminal gang has terrorized and kidnapped a number of persons around Bali and Takum LGAs of the state using a Camp in Garuwa village in Bali LGA to keep their victims until this encounter when they fell to the superior fire power of our operatives in a shootout.
A statement by CP David Akinremi said, “Three members of the gang died in the shootout with others escaped with gunshot injuries.
“One AK 47 rifle with 10 rounds of ammunition, one single barrel rifle with 5 live cartridges and some criminal charms were recovered from the bandits in addition to clothing’s suspected to belong to some of their victims.
“Members of the public are enjoined to report any persons with bullet injuries to the nearest police station and appreciate their continued support in our crime fighting efforts.”
