Air Troops of Operation Thunder Strike at the General area of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) have killed no fewer than 20 armed bandits in Kaduna state.
According to PRNigeria, the over 50 bandits were sighted in makeshift tents and motorcycles moving towards the Academy, in Kaduna State.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that armed bandits attacked the Nigerian Defence Academy, killed two officers and abducted four in August, 2021.
Following a tip-off on movement of bandits through the military school’s general areas on Thursday, two Nigerian Air Force (NAF) helicopter gunships were dispatched to engage the criminals, who had taken off from DAMARI village in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.
“On sighting the aircraft, the bandits started fleeing into the fringes of the forest. This brought about an objective and very decisive rain of hell from above on the miscreants as surviving bandits seen to be scampering for safety from the superior air presence were effectively mopped up.
“Moreso as it is customary, feedback received on Friday after the operation from both the ground forces and local sources, revealed that the bandits were effectively disoriented and suffered a loss of about 20 bandits.”
“Also, their plans of harassing and shaming the Nigerian Defence Academy and the Government of the day were effectively thwarted,” he said.
