Governor Sani Confirms Elimination of Notorious Wanted Terrorist, Boderi, in Kaduna

Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State has officially confirmed the demise of Boderi Isyaku, a wanted terrorist and ruthless killer.

According to Governor Sani, Isyaku was neutralized, along with some of his fighters, in a gunfight with Nigerian Army troops in the Bada/Riyawa general areas of Chikun and Igabi LGAs in Kaduna State.

The confirmation was issued through a statement signed by Samuel Aruwan, the overseeing Commissioner of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, titled “Target Acquired, Justice Served: Boderi Falls To Security Forces.”

The statement highlights Boderi’s reign of fear, death, and destruction in Kaduna State and neighboring Niger State over the course of nearly a decade. He was notorious for his brutal attacks, mass abductions, and merciless killings.

The successful elimination of Boderi is attributed to the unwavering dedication of troops committed to restoring peace and security in the region. Major General VU Okoro, the General Officer Commanding, 1 Division, Nigerian Army (and Force Commander, Operation Whirl Punch), meticulously planned and coordinated the operation based on intelligence gathered.

During the operation, which took place on Wednesday night, the troops encountered Boderi and his fighters in the Bada general area of Chikun LGA. Despite the terrorists’ fortified position, the troops effectively laid an ambush, leading to the capture of Boderi and his associates.

The killing of Boderi Isyaku is considered a significant milestone in the ongoing fight against terrorism and banditry. It serves as a testament to the effectiveness of determined and coordinated efforts by security forces in confronting individuals who aim to spread fear and chaos.
