Scores of armed bandits belonging to the notorious Bello Turji camp have been eliminated, a security news platform PRNigeria reports.
The bandits were killed during a ‘surprise raid’ by the air troops of Operation Forest Sanity in Zamfara State.
The ‘surprise attack’ of the military troops was carried out by two Nigerian Air Force, NAF, fighter jets, upon receiving credible intelligence.
A defence intelligence source told PRNigeria that the NAF jets rained their missiles at Fakai area, believed to be the residence of the dreaded Turji, as part of the military counter-offensive operation currently going on in Shinkafi axis.
“At the moment, we can’t give the actual casualty figure,” the source added.
