News Nigerian troops kill scores of bandits fighters in Zamfara

Director, Defence Media Operation, Major General John Enenche, who made this known at a media briefing, also indicated that the DHQ has provided three additional treatment and isolation centres of its own.

The Defence Headquarters has said that the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has destroyed bandits’ camp in the Kagara Forest, Zamfara State.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement in Abuja.

Enenche explained that the mission was conducted on July 20, adding that several bandits were also neutralized.

The statement read: “The Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has dealt another blow on armed bandits in Zamfara State with the disruption of a camp in the Kagara Forest as well as the neutralization of some of their fighters. The mission was conducted on July 20 2020 pursuant to Human Intelligence reports indicating the heavy presence of the armed bandits, along with a large number of rustled livestock, in a portion of the forest. This was later confirmed by a series of aerial surveillance missions.

“Accordingly, the Air Component dispatched Nigerian Air Force fighter jets to engage the location, with their munitions hitting the targets leading to the killing of some of the armed bandits. Some of them who were seen attempting to escape camouflaged in between the livestock were taken out in follow-on attacks.

“The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has commended the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI for their professionalism and urged them to remain resolute in the conduct of air strikes whilst continuing to provide close air support for ongoing ground operations in order to eradicate all armed bandits; thus accomplishing the directives of the Chief of Defence Staff to restore normalcy in the North-West and North-Central zones of the country.”
