Many terrorists have been reportedly killed during aerial patrols conducted by officers of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).

The aerial patrols were carried out at identified bandits’ hideouts in some parts of Kaduna.

Kaduna is one of the worst-hit states as it relates to activities of bandits and insurgents.

In a statement on Monday, Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, said three terrorists were killed at Kawara area of Igabi LGA during an airstrike.


Aruwan also said some terrorists were killed in communities in Chikun LGA.

“In Kawara area of Igabi LGA, a strike was carried out on an identified bandit location,” the statement reads.

“Three bandits were confirmed neutralised by the strike, and some kidnapped victims were thus able to escape from the general area, as was later confirmed by credible human intelligence sources on the ground.


“Similarly, in Walawa, Giwa LGA, an active location was targeted and struck successfully.

“In Chikun LGA, armed surveillance was carried out over Faka, Kangon Kadi, Damba, Ungwan Turai, Galbi, Gwagwada and environs.

“Terrorists were sighted about 4km Northwest of Godani, and were neutralised.

“In Kuduru, an active terrorists’ location was sighted and struck with rockets.


“In Igabi LGA, operations were conducted over Riyawa, Alhaji Isiaka, Rima, Riyawa, Rumana, Ungwan Liman, Mai Gishiri and the Kaduna Airport area, with no significant activity noticed.

“A similar situation obtained in Sabon Birnin, Anaba, Malumi, Wusono and Kerawa.

“Also covered by the aerial patrols were the Kaduna-Abuja road and rail line, as well as Jere, Katari, Olam Farms, Gwagwada, Sarkin Pawa, Abulo, Mangoro, Chikwale and environs.

“Normal human and vehicular activities were observed, with no threats encountered.


“The Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road and adjoining areas were similarly covered: Buruku, Labi, Udawa, Manini and Polewire up to Kajuru, Jaka da Rabi and Maguzawa.”
