SP Muhammad Shehu, the Command's Public Relations Officer, confirmed the development in a statement on Thursday in Gusau.

"Yesterday at about 1 p.m., a large number of armed bandits blocked Gusau - Sokoto Road at Dogon Karfe axis, scaring commuters to scamper for safety.

"The operatives gallantly repelled them, deterring the hoodlums from the further onslaught on the commuters," Shehu said.
