Several armed bandits have been killed and their meeting venue significantly damaged in air strikes executed by the Air Component of Operation Thunder Strike in Kwaimbana Forest area of Kaduna State.

Maj. Gen. John Enenche, Coordinator, Defence Media Operations (DMO) disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

The Coordinator informed that the air raid was conducted 17 September 2020, after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions led to the identification of the hideout along with a building in the centre of the area which was being used by the armed bandits as meeting venue.

“Accordingly, the Air Component dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and helicopter gunships to attack the location.

“The attack aircraft took turns in engaging the target area, scoring accurate hits which resulted in the damage of the building as well as neutralization of several bandits”, he said.
