Airstrikes kills “scores” of bandits, destroys their camps in forest, border areas of Kaduna State – Defence Spokesperson

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Thursday said the Air Component of Operation THUNDER STRIKE has killed “scores” of bandits and destroyed their camps in the forest and border areas of Kaduna State.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that the airstrikes were executed at Camp Alpha in Kwiambana Forest as well as at Fadaman Kanauta and Jan-Birni in the last two days (Tuesday and Wednesday).

Stating that Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets from the new subsidiary air interdiction operation, “KASHE MUGU 2,” executed the airstrikes, tagged “KASHE MUGU 2,” the Defence Spokesperson noted that the destroyed camp locations “were being used by the bandits as staging areas, to store their logistics, hide rustled cattle and launch attacks.

“The air strike at Kwiambana Forest was undertaken after an ISR aircraft spotted 4 clusters of huts where the armed bandits reside.

“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and attack helicopters dispatched by the Air Component recorded successful hits in the target area taking out some of the bandits.

“In the same vein, at Fadaman Kanauta and Jan-Birni, the NAF attack aircraft took turns in strafing the target areas leading to the neutralization of several of the bandits as well as damage to their dwellings.”
