The troops conducted raid operations in several villages across Plateau and Kaduna States, leading to the arrest of 11 suspects and the recovery of four locally fabricated guns.

Thanks to actionable intelligence, OPSH successfully arrested 10 suspected cattle rustlers in Jos metropolis and foiled a robbery operation, apprehending four armed robbers in the process. Furthermore, troops deployed in Riyom LGA recovered 49 cows grazing on farmlands and apprehended three suspects involved in farm destruction.

The relentless efforts of OPSH also resulted in the arrest of two herders, Haruna Dare and Jibrin Ali, for the killing of a farmer in Jema’a LGA, Kaduna State. In Barkin Ladi LGA, Plateau State, three herders were arrested for assaulting a woman, and a notorious kidnapper, Ibrahim Suleiman Abba, was apprehended in Sanga LGA, Kaduna State.

Numerous other arrests were made, including suspects involved in multiple murders, attempted kidnappings, and attacks on vulnerable communities. In total, 43 arrests were made, 24 suspected kidnappers were apprehended, and six victims were rescued. The proactive response to distress calls and the support of the local communities were crucial in the success of these operations.

OPSH expresses gratitude to the people of Plateau, Bauchi, and Southern Kaduna states for their unwavering support and urges them to continue providing actionable information to ensure the complete eradication of criminal elements within the JOA. With the commitment of the troops and the cooperation of the local communities, Operation SAFE HAVEN is making significant strides in ensuring the safety and security of the region.
