The Defence Headquarters has said that the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI, has neutralized 67 bandits at Birnin Kogo Forest in Katsina State.

According to Enenche, the operation was executed on Monday sequel to credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports.
The statement reads: “No fewer than 67 bandits, armed with very high calibre weapons, including Anti-Aircraft (AA) Guns, have been neutralized and several others injured in air interdiction missions executed by the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI at Birnin Kogo Forest in Katsina State.
“In the same vein, about fifteen armed bandits were eliminated in air strikes conducted by the Air Component at Ajjah Forest in Zamfara State. Both air strikes were carried out yesterday, 23 November 2020, sequel to credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports as well as aerial surveillance missions that led to the identification of the 2 forest hideouts, which housed scores of the armed bandits along with hundreds of rustled cattle.
“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships dispatched by the Air Component to attack the two locations took turns in engaging the target areas, scoring accurate hits on the caves, which are used by the armed bandits to shield themselves from air strikes.”
