When we arrived yesterday(Tuesday) at Kanya, we got reports that the bandits mixed up with the inhabitants of Kanya. “So, It was difficult to have fought the bandits in the midst of the people because the collateral damage would have been much. “Then we then adopted a strategy to move out of the town so that they follow us. In the process, because we were both vulnerable, both sides recorded casualties. Yombe remarked, “I doff my cap for the soldiers at Zuru Battalion who were few compared to the number of the bandits. 
He added, “from the gunshots, you will assume they were 200 or 250 bandits. And the soldiers were a unit of about 30 troops, escorting the commanding officer. “In terms of strength, the soldiers were overwhelmed. It was impossible for the troops to maneuver but they were able to disengage from the bandits to safer ground.” However, when he was asked to disclose the number of casualties on the side of the government, he declined, saying “No, I cannot disclose the number. It is against the ethics of the profession.”
