Military aircraft have intercepted and neutralised 34 terrorists at Mangoro village, a border community between Kaduna and Niger States.


Military sources said the Air Component of Operation Thunder Strike
following credible information that at about 2pm on March 30, 2022,
about 70 terrorists on 40 motorcycles and some on foot were sighted
moving towards the Akilibu – Sarkin Pawa Road, near Mangoro village,
scrambled an aircraft to intercept and neutralise the terrorists.


The locals while commending the military for their improved swiftness
to emergencies, also charged them to ensure they apprehend those
behind the murder of passengers of the Kaduna bound train.
