The Zamfara State Police Command has arrested seven security agents involved in aiding and abetting banditry in the state.

According to a statement on Thursday by the state government, the suspects have already been interrogated and confessed to the crime.

It added that the suspects confessed to have been sabotaging military operations in the state by sharing military intelligence, supplying arms and ammunition, military uniforms, and other facilities to the armed bandits to prevent soldiers from conquering the bandits.

One of the suspects was caught in possession of 20 rounds of 62mm of live ammunition at the point of handing over to the buyer, one Kabiru Bashiru of Maniya village, a suspected active bandit after receiving an advanced payment of N100,000 from the buyer.

The second suspect from Sokoto was caught by detectives supplying military uniforms and kits to suspected bandits while two other suspects were arrested as they were supplying bandits with ammunition and military camouflage from Lagos.
