NAF’s spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola (Guardian)

The operation was executed yesterday, May 25, pursuant to human intelligence (HUMINT) reports indicating that some locations within the forest were being used by the bandits as hideouts, including a group of huts belonging to a notorious kingpin named`Dangote.’

“Accordingly, following confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), an Alpha Jet aircraft was detailed to attack the bandits’ camp leading to the destruction of their structures and neutralisation of close to two dozen bandits,” he said.

Daramola said the NAF, working in consonance with other security agencies, would sustain its operations to flush the bandits out of the north west of the country.
