Rev. John Hayab the state’s CAN Chairman gave the commendation in a statement issued on Thursday in Kaduna.
Hayab urged security operatives to keep the momentum until the state and country were freed from criminals.
“When such evil was going on, we cried to the government and security agencies to carry out their Constitutional duties but it seemed the cries fell on deaf ears.
“However, the news that security men went after bandits in Birnin-Gwari forest and killed many of them on Wednesday brought back hope and the expectations that good and peaceful days may be returning to our dear state and country.
“Even though this effort may be coming late but it is better late than never.
“Therefore, we celebrate this feat and encourage the police to keep the momentum until every criminal and all their hideouts are cleared for citizens to have new lease of life,” he said.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that police operatives on Wednesday went after suspected bandits in Birnin-Gwari forest.
