Scores of Bandits Crushed, Camps Destroyed by Airstrikes at Kuduru Forest in Kaduna
Scores of armed bandits have been killed by the Air Component of Operation THUNDER STRIKE at their camp in the Kuduru Forest area of Kaduna State.
This according to the Coordinator Defence Media Operations Major General John Enenche was achieved through air strikes carried out on 13 August 2020 on the heels of intelligence reports indicating the convergence of members of an Ansaru Terrorist Sect-linked bandits group, led by one Mallam Abba, at the location.
”Aerial surveillance missions conducted over the area also observed several bandits, some wielding weapons, in the forest.
”Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and helicopter gunships were therefore tasked to attack the location. Several of the bandits were killed as the attack aircraft strafed the area, while others attempting to escape were mopped-up in follow-on attacks.” He said.
