This was disclosed by a Military source in Makurdi, the Benue State Capital.
The source said the operation was sequel to the incessant bandits’ operations in some Communities across the States, which had resulted in the death of so many people.
It disclosed that the clearance operation covered some Islands behind NASME Barracks in Makurdi and Gbajimba in Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, where it is believed that the bandits, who normally come from Nasarawa State, had their hideouts, from where they launch attacks on innocent people.
