Security forces raided a suspected terrorist hideout in Sharada, Kano State, at dawn and were met with stiff resistance that left residents of the area scampering for safety at the gunfight that ensued.

Ibrahim Idris, the state’s Commissioner of Police, said the Joint Task Force raided the hideout following intelligence reports that suspected Boko Haram members were hiding in the area and plotting to attack the Sharada Police Station.

He said one of the terrorists was killed while three women and a child, believed to be family members of the sect members, were captured alive.

He added that over 4000 rounds of live ammunition meant for AK 47 rifles, six drums of bomb making materials, and several knives were recovered from the terrorists during the operation.
