NAF kills 25 armed bandits, neutralises dozens in Zamfara



The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has
disclosed that it has killed 25
armed bandits and neutralised
more than a dozen in Zamfara
State in an operation fire for fire
against the notorious armed bandits.

According to a press statement by
the Air Force spokesman, Air
Commodore Ibikunle Daramola,
the operation was carried out by
the Air Task operation Diran
Mikiya, noting that an armed bandits logistics base at Ajia was
destroyed, killing 25 armed
bandits.

According to the statement, Ajia
and Wanna had been the hideout
of the armed bandits operating
within Birnin Magaji local
government area of the state.

He noted that the operation that
killed the armed bandits and
neutralised others was carried
out recently following Human
intelligence report which indicated
that the armed bandits were operating from a compound
within Ajia as logistics store to
complement their nefarious acts.

Daramola stated that the Alpha
jet, which he said was supported
by an intelligence, surveillance
and Reconnaissance (ISR)
platform, was perfectly used to
attack the compound, saying that the task force used strategies
which he said set the compound
ablaze.

Speaking further, he noted that
the action resulted in the
destruction of all the structures
and neutralised most of them,
adding that the few armed
bandits who escaped flew the axis but were taken out in follow-up attacks, stressing that those
who escaped the attacks were
tracked to Wanka where they
were neutralised by the team.

The Air Commodore therefore
appealed to members of the
public to endeavour to report any
suspicious movement of anybody
and give the military useful
information that would repel the machinations of armed bandits.
