Airstrikes kills “several” bandits, “disrupts” their camps in two forest locations in Kaduna State, says Defence Spokesperson

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Friday said that the Air Component of Operation THUNDER STRIKE killed “several” bandits and disrupted their camps in the Kuduru and Kwaimbana Forest areas of Kaduna State.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche said in a statement released from Defence Headquarters, Abuja that the operations was conducted through separate air strikes carried out on Wednesday and Thursday “on the heels of credible intelligence reports indicating that the two locations were being used as staging areas by the bandits.”

According to General Enenche, “the attack on the Kuduru Forest hideout was executed after aerial reconnaissance missions observed significant number of armed bandits around some compounds in a small settlement within the forest.

“Accordingly, the Air Component dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and helicopter gunships to attack the location. The attack aircraft took turns in strafing the target area leading to the neutralization of several of the bandits as well as damage to their dwellings.

“At the Kwaimbana Forest, where some bandits were seen along with many rustled cattle around some huts and makeshift structures, the NAF jets and helicopter gunships engaged the area in successive passes, taking out some of the bandits.”
