NAF airstrikes kills over 37 bandits in 2 forest camps in Dunya and Birnin Kogo, Katsina State, Northwest Nigeria – Defence Spokesperson

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Friday said the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) component of Operation HADARIN DAJI killed over 37 bandits and destroyed structures at two camps in Dunya and Birnin Kogo Forests in Katsina State, Northwest Nigeria.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche said in a statement that the “the air raids were conducted on 23 and 24 November 2020 on the heels of impeccable intelligence reports indicating that the 2 camps, with their clusters of huts, were among the locations being used by the terrorists-affiliated armed bandits to store their sophisticated weapons and plan attacks.”

General Enenche also noted that “aerial surveillance missions also established pattern-of-life evidence of the presence of black attire-wearing terrorists at the 2 locations.

“Consequently, the Air Component dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, which engaged the 2 locations in successive passes, destroying portions of the camps, including their storage facilities, which were seen engulfed in flames.

“HUMINT (Human Intelligence) sources later confirmed that no fewer than 37 bandits were neutralized at Dunya while many more were killed at Birnin Kogo.”
