…As Airstrikes Kill Bandit Head, Dogo Umaru, 40 Others In Katsina
In a bid to ensure that peace reign in the Northwest, the Nigeria Air Force has commenced radical operation within the region to flush out bandits.
Recall that on Wednesday, NAF fighter aircraft neutralized a bandit, honcho Dogo Umaru and at least 40 other bandits near Tsamben Babare village in Katsina were killed in the operation.
An army intelligence confirmed the recent bombardment in response to the recent invasion by the group that led to the death of Magama Divisional Police Officer (DPO); a soldier was also injured.
“Strikes by a NAF aircraft and ground troops combat in Kaduna and Niger eliminated scores of terrorists near the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) and along Shadadi-Maundu last week”, he said.
