Acting on credible Human Intelligence, troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY backed by helicopter gunships of the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI stormed the bandits’ enclave at Komani Hills within Rukudawa general area of Zamfara State and made contact with the criminals elements. This is contained in a press statement by Major General John Enenche, Defence Media Operations.
