After Purchase Of Two Helicopters, Nigerian Airforce Neutralise Several Bandits In Zamfara | Jeremy Spell Blog
Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, said the operation was conducted on Monday.
“Accordingly, the ATF dispatched two Alpha Jets and an attack helicopter to provide the needed support and also conduct armed reconnaissance over identified locations in Shinkafi LGA as well as Sububu and Dumburum Forests and environs.
“At Sububu Forest, one of the Alpha Jets spotted a group of bandits, who fired at the aircraft with their rifles, whilst running for cover.
“The Alpha Jet engaged the bandits, neutralising no fewer than 10 of them while others escaped with injuries,” he said.
Daramola said the NAF, working in consonance with surface forces and other security agencies, would sustain its operations to flush the bandits out of the North West of the Country.
