Military kills “several” bandits, destroys their logistics base at Kwiambana Forest area of Zamfara State

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Wednesday said that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) of Operation HADARIN DAJI conducted airstrikes that killed “several” bandits and destroyed their logistics facilities at the Kwiambana Forest area of Zamfara State, Northwest region of the country. 

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations (DMOs), Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that the “massive airstrikes” was conducted on Tuesday “as part of air interdiction missions being executed under subsidiary Operation WUTAN DAJI 2 to rid the North West of the Country of armed bandits and other criminal elements.”

General Enenche added that “the location was designated for attack after Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports and confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, established that the cluster of huts and other  structures at the edge of the Forest served as hideout for notorious bandits’ leaders ‘Sani Mochoko’ and ‘Damina’ and some of their fighters.

“Accordingly, the Air Component scrambled Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and helicopter gunships to attack the location. The attack aircraft took turns in engaging the target area resulting in significant damage to the bandits’ structures as well as the killing of several of their fighters.”
