An air strike by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has reportedly killed suspected members of a terrorist syndicate in Kaduna state.

Edward Gabkwet, NAF spokesperson, announced the development in a statement on Monday.

Gabkwet said the strike followed an intelligence report about the movement of the syndicate along the Kwiga-Kampamin Doka axis in Birnin Gwari LGA of Kaduna state.

He added that intelligence report also revealed that the same syndicate was responsible for an ambush on troops at Kwanan Mutuwa on January 27, and several attacks and abduction of innocent civilians in Birnin Gwari.
