The Nigerian Air Force says its Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has destroyed armed bandits’ camp and neutralised dozens of bandits in air strikes conducted at Doumbourou Forest in Zamfara State.

The director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola in a statement said the  operation was executed on 25 May 2019, following human intelligence (HUMINT) reports indicating that some locations within the Forest were being used by the armed bandits as hideouts, including a group of huts belonging to a notorious kingpin named ‘Dangote’.

He noted that following confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), an Alpha Jet aircraft was detailed to attack the armed bandits’ camp leading to the destruction of their structures and “neutralisation of close to two dozen bandits,”

He further reiterated that the NAF, working in consonance with other security agencies, will sustain its operations to flush the bandits out of the Northwest of the country.
