His said “Air platforms conducted armed reconnaissance over Sabon Birni, Rikau, Kaya, Kerawa, Galadimawa, Fatika, Kidandan, Saulawa, Dogon Dawa, Ngede Allah, Kuduru, Yadi, Damari, Takama, Sabuwa, Ungwan Yako, the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road, the Ungwan Yako-Kuduru track and environs.”
“According to the operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government, armed bandits with rustled cattle were sighted about 3km southwest of Galadimawa, apparently fleeing the area due to the air raid. They were promptly engaged and neutralized.
“Visual and radio contact was maintained with ground troops, and all other covered areas were reported to be calm with no suspicious activities observed.” The statement said
“In another mission, air platforms swiftly mobilized for a mission over Kidandan village following reports of bandits’ activities in the area.

According to Mr. Aruwan, “Aggressive patrols will continue with regularity in these and other areas of interest across the state.”
