The Nigerian Air Force aerial assaults on terrorist camps across three Local Government Areas of Igabi, Chikun and Birnin-Gwari in Kaduna State have led to the killing of many terrorists.
The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, was, however, silent on when the operations were carried out.
He said, “The Nigerian Air Force has continued with assaults on identified bandit camps and enclaves around Kaduna State.
“Feedback to the Kaduna State Government revealed that a camp in Riyawa, Igabi LGA, was targeted and destroyed. A terrorist location at Tofa general area of Birnin Gwari LGA was similarly engaged and struck.
“Close air support was provided to ground troops conducting operations in Maidaro, Dogon Dawa, Damari, Saulawa and Farin Ruwa areas of Birnin Gwari LGA.
“Armed reconnaissance was carried out along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road, Buruku, Kurmin Dande, Damba, Ungwan Yako, Udawa, Manini, Kuriga, Gagafada, Kushaka, Polewire and Kamfanin Doka areas spanning Chikun and Birnin Gwari LGAs. No suspicious activity was observed at the locations covered.
“Further updates will be communicated as they emerge.”
