Military kills 27 bandits in Zamfara, Katsina States

The Nigerian Armed Forces said that its Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has killed 27 armed bandits and destroyed some of their dwellings along the Nahuta-Doumborou Corridor on the border between Katsina and Zamfara States.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement on Friday evening that the operation was executed on Thursday “sequel to credible intelligence reports indicating that a notorious armed bandit leader and his followers were harboured in a cluster of huts near a high ground in the area.”

General Enenche stated that “the Air Component dispatched a Nigerian Air Force attack helicopter as well as a ground attack aircraft to engage the location.”

The Defence Spokesperson noted that once the aircraft was “overhead the target area, several of the armed bandits were seen along with a large number of rustled cattle.

“The attack aircraft took turns in engaging the area, neutralizing some of the bandits while few escaped with injuries. Human Intelligence (HUMINT) sources later confirmed that no fewer than 27 bandits were neutralized as a result of the attack.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria wishes to thank all Nigerians for their support and encourages the general public to continue providing useful information that would facilitate its operations to restore peace and security to all affected parts of the Country.”
