The Nigerian Air Force says its airstrikes have killed several armed bandits at Walawa, Yadi and Kuduru hills in Kaduna State.
In a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, some of their logistics supplies were destroyed in the process.
This follows a special operation conducted in coordination with the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies to smoke out the bandits.
Daramola explained that the operation was carried out “after credible intelligence reports and days of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions revealed that the bandits, after driving away from the original inhabitants of the area, had continued to operate from the locations with impunity.”
Daramola also reiterated the commitment of the Air Force to flush the armed bandits out of the Northwest region.
