The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has neutralized bandits gathering to carry out attacks in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State.

Samuel Aruwan, the state commissioner for Homeland Security and Home Affairs, made the disclosure in a statement released Tuesday in Kaduna.

“The Nigerian Air Force, in response to credible intelligence, neutralized a group of bandits congregating at a location to carry out attacks on Birnin Gwari LGA on Monday, May 3,” he said.

Aruwan said the state government had received intelligence on bandits gathering outside Kugu at Birnin Gwari LGA on Sunday.

According to him, the LGA is also close to some villages in the Shiroro LGA of the state of Niger.

“Upon receiving the intelligence, which was sent to the armed forces and other security agencies for further confirmation and action, the NAF component of Operation Thunder Strike (OPTS) mobilized for an armed reconnaissance,” he said.

The first mission, he said, was carried out on the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari, Kuriga, Polewire, Gagafada, Manini, Udawa, Labi, Buruku road and neighboring settlements.

“The location of the target was acquired and the bandits were attacked and neutralized accordingly on the outskirts of Kugu village.

“In a second mission, an armed reconnaissance was carried out on the Kaduna-Abuja highway, Olam Company, Rugu, Akilbu, Polewire, Rijana, Kateri and Jere. Normal movements of humans and vehicles were observed, ”he said.

The commissioner said that the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, thanked the air component and all the agencies involved in the successful missions.
