No fewer tha 50 bandits advancing toward a military camp in Saulawa Farin Ruwa, Kaduna, were intercepted by NAF gunship and boots o the ground, leading to a massacre of the bandits.

The criminals rode on several motorcycles to ambush ground troops at Dogon Dawa and Damari communities in Birnin Gwari local government area of the State.

“In continuation of the Kaduna state Multi-Agency Op, the NAF Air Component on 18 Oct 21 provided Close Air Support to ground forces advancing from Dogon-Dawa-Damari-Saulawa axis axis,” a soldier among the ground troop revealed PRNigeria using military parlance.

“Extensive scan to avert any form of surprise attacks from bandits around the location led to the interception of armed bandits on 5x motorcycle 2nm east of SAULAWA, staging for a possible ambush on advancing troops. With a good mind of judgement and sincerity of purpose, the helicopter gunship brought the miscreants to their unexpected doom with several precise strikes.

“Subsequently, after the neutrlization of the bandits’ ambush party, armed bandits on about 50 x motorcycles were sighted fleeing towards FARIN RUWA and were struck effectively with weapons on board. Fleeing bandits within the surrounding forests were followed up and engaged by ground forces.

“In maintaining presence for an effective annihilation of the bandits, a second helicopter gunship came overhead the location in dogged support of the ground forces. Several armed bandits seen scampering for safety in disarray under superior fire power from the ground and air forces were rained with hell from the air asset overhead. This led to the effective annihilation of large number of armed bandits from the face of the earth.”

PRNigeria said one of the videos of the encounter showed how a military helicopter were pursuing the fleeing bandits, while ground troops at the other end were shelling the terrorists.
