Several Bandits In Zamfara Killed - NAF


ABUJA, NIGERIA - Several bandits were on Tuesday killed by the air component of Operation Hadarin Daji in the Kwiambana Forest area of Zamfara State, Nigeria.

Their logistics facilities were equally destroyed while the airstrikes lasted.

This was achieved by air interdiction missions executed under the subsidiary Operation Wutan Daji 2 meant to rid the North-West zone of criminal elements.

According to a statement issued in Abuja, Nigeria, by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, the location was targeted after human intelligence reports and confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions established that the cluster of huts and other structures at the edge of the forest served as a hideout for notorious bandits’ leaders, Sani Mochoko and Damina and some of their fighters.

Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said: “Accordingly, the air component scrambled Nigerian Air Force 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.”
