The Nigerian Military on Thursday outlined some of its recent successes against bandits roaming the country’s North-West region.

In a press statement signed by acting spokesman Bernard Onyeuko, the military said its Operation Sahel Sanity have recovered cattle and arrested suspected bandits in the past few days.

“The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has commended the troops for their gallantry, successes and their resilience,” Onyeuko said in his statement.
