Military Airstrikes Kill 135 Bandits, Destroy Camps In Katsina, Zamfara – Spokes by Racoon(m): 12:14pm On May 23
The Nigerian Military on Saturday said it has killed at least 135 armed bandits during air-raids across Katsina and Zamfara states.

According to a statement signed by a military spokesman, Major General, John Enenche, the air raids, executed by the air component of Operation Hadarin Daji, took place between May 20 and 22.

The military said it also neutralised bandit camps.Nigeria has, in recent years, witnessed a rise in banditry across the country, including in the north-western states of Zamfara and Katsina.

The military said its air-raids, which are conducted based on credible intelligence reports, are intended to rid the north-west of the armed bandits.

 Read the military full’s statement below:

AIR COMPONENT DECIMATES ARMED BANDITS CAMPS, KILLS 135 OF THEM IN AIR RAIDS CONDUCTED IN KATSINA AND ZAMFARA STATES


1. As part of the renewed offensive to rid the North West of the Country of armed bandits and other criminal elements, the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has decimated several camps and neutralized no fewer than 135 armed bandits in massive air raids executed at several locations in Katsina and Zamfara States between 20 and 22 May 2020. The air strikes were undertaken sequel to credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports as well as series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that led to the identification of the camps, which include Abu Radde Camps 1 and 2 and Dunya in Jibia and DanMusa Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Katsina State as well as Hassan Tagwaye’s Camp; Alhaji Auta’s Camp and Maikomi in Birnin Magaji and Zurmi LGAs of Zamfara State.

2. The air interdiction missions were painstakingly undertaken by the Air Component as it dispatched its attack aircraft to the locations in multiple bombing runs, some of which were executed simultaneously. At the Abu Radde Camps on 20 May 2020, a set of huts housing one of the notorious bandit leaders was taken out by air strikes with scores of the bandits killed and few seen fleeing with gunshot wounds towards the Dumburum Forest. Similar air raids were executed at Hassan Tagwaye’s and Alhaji Auta’s Camps as well as at Maikomi with equally devastating effects. HUMINT reports later confirmed that no fewer than 135 bandits were neutralized by the series of air strikes at the various locations.

3.     The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) commends the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI for their professionalism and directs them to remain resolute, in order to achieve the directives of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS)to restore normalcy to all parts of Nigeria.

4.     You are please requested to disseminate this information, along with the attached declassified short video clip of the attack on Abu Radde’s Camps, through your medium for the awareness of the general public. Thank you for your usual support and cooperation.

Another audio air strike.They will strike "bandits" which is highly commendable but grant amnesty to BH terrorists. Why is our country like this? angry

Where are the picture evidence? The Chadian army went quietly and inflicted maximum damage and left the results for all to see.

This is good. But let wait for update on casualties on the military side.
To be unequivocal with the truth, the war against banditry and terrorism can't be won with military campaign alone. We need to investigate etymologically and come up with decisive measure to nip the security challenges in the bud.
What intelligence have we gathered concerning their operations and grievances? What other measures are we applying to tame these cruel people?

Who cares what you people believe.

When your hero in Chad lied to you that he killed 1000 terrorists, you unpatriotic and anti Nigerian elements did not ask for pictures or yell audio, you just swallowed the lie like mumu.

Picture ko, video ni..


God Bless our brave and gallant troops.

He is Bokoharam Iswap Support Group propagandists, because PMB remove feeding bottle from his mouth, he has never been the same. They are the kind of people who praise BH to the high heavens and mock out troops repeatedly.

The best thing is for the North to stop conglomeration of almanjiri by stop breeding anyhow. Boko Haram and banditry are the products of almanjiri. What do u expect of a child that lack parental care and advice. They will surely fall victims of negative vices. The earlier the better for them.

Look at this ignorant ipob. When boko terrorists set off bombs in Kuje and Nyanya, Abuja killing dozens of Nigerians, were the victims only Northerners or you just think terrorists bombs discriminate based on tribe or religion?


You ipobs can be very ignorant sha.
