NAF AIRSTRIKES KILL SCORES OF BANDITS IN CHIKUN LGA OF KADUNA

The Nigerian Air Force has killed scores of bandits in offensive airstrikes launched in Chikun LGA of State.


Eons Intelligence gathered that the airstrikes were conducted over some identified locations in Kauwuri and Gaude villages.


The locations were identified as bandits enclaves following multiple Intelligence reports by the Airforce.


In a statement by Samuel Aruwan, the Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security, fighter jets attacked the bandit camps in Kauwuri general area, and armed bandits were observed fleeing from the locations. A helicopter gunship then followed for a close mop-up with rockets and cannons. 


In a second wave over Gaude, the air platforms attacked the identified bandit hideouts in the area. Bandits were similarly observed attempting to take cover under some trees. The location was then also attacked. 


Ground Military forces trailed and engaged the dozens of bandits who fled the location following the airstrikes.


Assessment revealed that many bandits were neutralized during the entire mission, and several camps were destroyed. 


This comes barely 72 hours after bandits invaded Emmanuel Baptist Church, Chikun LGA of Kaduna, killing two worshippers and abducting several others.
