JTF neutralises bandits during airstrikes in Niger

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Nigerian Air Force has neutralised an unconfirmed number of armed bandits during multiple airstrikes in Tshohon Kabula community in Munya Local Government Area of Niger State on Monday morning.

The casualties were the remnants of the bandits that exchanged gunfire with the state joint security taskforce in Gwada community of Shiroro local Government on Sunday.

A source told newsmen that the Air Force airstrikes on the bandits location were conducted on Monday at about 9:00am, which many were neutralized while others escaped with various degrees of injuries.

In the Sunday evening battle, the State Joint Security Taskforce had engaged the bandits in a gun battle along Gwada road on their way to Egwa village for an unknown mission which lasted for hours.

It was gathered that it took a reinforcement of the joint security taskforce from Erena area to defeat those who were in large numbers even as three security personnel sustained injuries during the fight.

This is coming after bandits killed a councilor representing Allawa Ward, Mallam Sale Yakubu while his personal assistant escaped some days ago.
