In continuation of the concerted efforts of clearing cattle rustlers, armed bandits and kidnappers in the north western geo-political region, troops of 1 Division in conjunction with other  security agencies have been making tremendous progress.

It is inline with this that troops of 223 Battalion, 1 Brigade, Nigerian Army embarked on a patrol to Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

Buoyed by this success, the troops morale is very high and are determined to continue to enhance the general security of their respective areas of operation through patrols, raids and clearance operations.
