Enenche said the operation was conducted on Saturday following credible intelligence reports indicating the significant presence of bandits in the area, about 20km West of the Kaduna-Abuja Highway

“Accordingly, after series of confirmatory aerial surveillance missions, the Air Component dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships to attack the location

“The attack aircraft, therefore, took turns in engaging the bandits, who were seen firing at the attack helicopter as it strafed them,” he said

The coordinator said many of the bandits were neutralsed in the strikes, while some escaped with various degrees of injuries

He added that aerial surveillance missions were been intensified, in coordination with ground troops, to locate the fleeing bandits
