Bandits in Katsina State have reportedly killed an officer of the 17 Brigade, Nigerian Army, Major A.G Mohammed.

The late Mohammed was a member of Operation Hadarin Daji and the Commander overseeing military operations in the Vantumaki, Dan Ali and Kankara axes of the state.

The news of his death was disclosed by a security analyst and counter-insurgency expert, Zagazola Makama, via his X handle on Friday.

Makama wrote, “The news of the demise of Major Ag Mohammed of 17 brigade Katsina State, Operation Hadarin DAJI is indeed heart-wrenching.

The Nigerian Army has upscaled its efforts in the fight against banditry and terrorism. However, these have come with a price.

In multiple reports, the military has lost several soldiers in its quest to better the security architecture of the country.

Recently, the mutilated corpses of soldiers killed in last Friday’s attack by suspected bandits in Shiroro Local Government Area of the Niger State have been recovered.

The soldiers were reported to have been killed when they engaged bandits in a duel in the Roro, Karaga, and Rumace communities, Bassa Ward in the Shiroro LG.

According to a source, the soldiers had lost their way while on a mission to combat the bandits occupying the forest when they were ambushed and there was a shootout which resulted in casualties on the side of the soldiers and the bandits.
