PHOTOS: Army arrests suspected Mangu attackers

Troops of Operation Safe Haven have apprehended suspected attackers causing mayhem in Kerang Mangu in Plateau State despite the imposed curfew. 

 The military successfully recovered a significant arsenal of weapons used in the attack.
The  Army made this known in a statement by the Media Information Officer of Operation SAFE HAVEN, Oya James, on its X handle on Friday, January 26.
Part of the statement reads: " Operation SAFE HAVEN strongly condemns the violent attack and destruction of properties by youths in kerang communities. Not only did the community destroy and looted  properties, but they also attacked Airforce Personnel enforcing the 24-hour curfew in Kerang Mangu, Plateau State. We have successfully apprehended the perpetrators and seized a cache of dangerous weapons used in the attack.
"In a shocking act of aggression, the youth of Kerang Mangu launched an assault on our troops deployed to maintain peace and security during the curfew. This attack, which included firing at the troops' patrol vehicles, posed a significant threat to the safety of both the military personnel and the community at large.

"During the subsequent operation to apprehend the attackers, the military successfully recovered a significant arsenal of weapons. The seized items include one AK-47 rifle, four locally fabricated automatic rifles, one locally made mortar bomb launcher, seven empty shells of 7.62mm, one empty shell of a cartridge, one pistol magazine, 36 Boris, three rounds of 7.62mm, and seven rounds of 9 x 19mm."
