The Nigerian Defence Headquarters has reported that the Air Component of Operation THUNDER STRIKE has neutralized several armed bandits in the Kwiambana Forest area of Kaduna State.

According to a statement signed by the Coordinator of the Defence Media Operation, Major General John Enenche, he noted that the operation, which took place on 12 November 2020, was executed sequel to reports that close to a hundred bandits carrying high calibre weapons, mounted on motorcycles, had rustled a large number of cattle and other livestock from Dankolo and Machitta Villages.

He said further, “The bandits and the rustled livestock were subsequently spotted by a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft on reconnaissance mission at Kaboru Village heading towards Kwiambana Forest. The Air Component therefore dispatched a NAF attack helicopter to the location which engaged the target area, leading to the neutralization of several of the bandits”
