The Defense Headquarters (DHQ) has said that troops of the Nigerian Army have killed 135 bandits in a raid on their hideouts in Katsina and Zamfara States.

It disclosed this in a statement released via its Twitter account on Saturday, adding that the bandits were killed in an operation involving troops of Operation Hadarin Daj.

According to the DHQ, some other bandits escaped with gunshot wounds in the operation conducted around Abu Radde Camps 1 and 2, Dunya in Jibia and DanMusa Local Government Areas of Katsina State, as well as Hassan Tagwaye’s Camp, Alhaji Auta’s Camp, Maikomi in Birnin Magaji and Zurmi LGAs of Zamfara State.

The statement reads ”As part of the renewed offensive to rid the North West of the Country of armed bandits and other criminal elements, the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI has decimated several camps and neutralized no fewer than 135 armed bandits in massive air raids executed at several locations in Katsina and Zamfara States between 20 and 22 May 2020.

”The air strikes were undertaken sequel to credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports as well as series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions that led to the identification of the camps, which include Abu Radde Camps 1 and 2 and Dunya in Jibia and DanMusa Local Government Areas of Katsina State as well as Hassan Tagwaye’s Camp; Alhaji Auta’s Camp and Maikomi in Birnin Magaji and Zurmi LGAs of Zamfara State.

”The air interdiction missions were painstakingly undertaken by the Air Component as it dispatched its attack aircraft to the locations in multiple bombing runs, some of which were executed simultaneously.

”At the Abu Radde Camps on 20 May 2020, a set of huts housing one of the notorious bandit leaders was taken out by air strikes with scores of the bandits killed and few seen fleeing with gunshot wounds towards the Dumburum Forest.
”Similar air raids were executed at Hassan Tagwaye’s and Alhaji Auta’s Camps as well as at Maikomi with equally devastating effects.

”HUMINT reports later confirmed that no fewer than 135 bandits were neutralized by the series of air strikes at the various locations

”The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) commends the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI for their professionalism and directs them to remain resolute, in order to achieve the directives of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS)to restore normalcy to all parts of Nigeria.”
