Bandits destroy hideout place

In a statement by the Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said that the success was achieved by airstrikes executed on 1 and 2 December 2020 pursuant to credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports and confirmatory surveillance missions indicating that a group of armed bandits.

The group is said to be led by one Jummo, who has ties to terrorist elements in the North East, had established a camp at the location, where they kept their motorcycles, high-caliber weapons as well as scores of rustled cattle.

He noted that the Air Component dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, which acquired and engaged the target area in successive passes, killing some of the bandits and their leaders and destroying portions of the camp, including their logistics storage, which was seen engulfed in flames.
