“On March 10, 2023, the police tactical operatives, in conjunction with the vigilantes, while on a mop-up operation near Munhaye Forest, successfully dislodged some bandits’ camp belonging to recalcitrant bandits’ kingpin known as Dogo Sule.

“As a result of the operation, 14 hostages, comprising two male adults, seven females and five children below the age of two years, were rescued.
