Gov Sani confirms killing of notorious, wanted terrorist, Boderi in Kaduna



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

Sani said Isyaku was neutralised in a gun duel alongside some of his fighters, by troops of the Nigerian Army in Bada/Riyawa general areas of Chikun and Igabi LGAs of Kaduna State.

This was contained in a statement signed by the overseeing Commissioner of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan titled, ‘Target Acquired, Justice Served: Boderi Falls To Security Forces.’

The statement reads partly: “Boderi, as he was simply known, had for nearly a decade propagated a reign of fear, death and destruction in Kaduna State and neighbouring Niger State, with a trademark of brutal attacks, mass abductions and cruel, relentless killing.


“His elimination comes as the culmination of tireless efforts by dedicated troops committed to restoring peace and security in the region. The General Officer Commanding, 1 Division, Nigerian Army (and Force Commander, Operation Whirl Punch) Major General VU Okoro, coordinated the operation through meticulous planning and intelligence.

“The troops on Wednesday night came in contact with Boderi and his fighters around the Bada general area of Chikun LGA. Despite the terrorists’ well-fortified position, the troops laid a successful ambush. Boderi and his associates walked into the trap and were cornered.

“The elimination of Boderi Isyaku, as a notable milestone in the ongoing fight against terrorism and banditry, demonstrates the effectiveness of determined and coordinated efforts by security forces in confronting those who seek to spread fear and chaos.”
