The state police command has arrested seven serving military officers for conspiring with bandits and providing them with logistics and arms, according to the Zamfara State Government.

The state Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, confirmed this in Gusau, adding that the police seized nine military bulletproof vests, four sets of military camouflage uniforms, and a Nigerian Army Identity card from the bandits and their accomplices.

The military personnel had already been interviewed by the police, according to the commissioner, and several of the suspects had made confessional remarks about their crimes.
