A military unit in Gusau, Zamfara State had suffered from too many ambushes from bandits.
A new Lt. Col. as Commanding Officer deployed to the Unit announced that they were going to attack bandits at 9am the next day.
Deliberately, at 10am he left his house and on arrival at his Unit asked his men to fall in on parade ground.
He asked that they be searched and all their phones collected. He then went to stay in his office for over an hour.
When he came out of the office, he instructed the soldiers to fall in again on parade ground and brought a big table upon which he lined up all the phones.
The first phone rang, he asked who is the owner? The soldier came forward. He was commanded to answer on speaker. A bandit was calling him to find out when the Unit is coming out to the bush and how many they were, so they can be ambushed.
The Lt.Col. asked him to drop the phone and move aside.
That’s how he discovered 8 soldiers and 2 Mopol collaborators/informants of the bandits. Desperate times require desperate measures, we can’t fold our arms for things to go out of hand. Military Commanders should come out with new measures to tackle this Crisis pls. God help Us.
