The Nigerian Air Force jets have killed many bandits in multiple missiles strikes at the wedding feast of a notorious Katsina bandit.

The strike also led to the killing of one Sule, a notorious bandits leader and brother to a killer bandit, Lalbi Ginshima.

PRNigeria reported that troops of the Nigerian Military Air Task Force carried out the attack at Unguwar Adam Village in Dan Musa local government area of the state.

The attack followed intelligence gathering that the bandits had converged in Unguwar Adam for the wedding.

A top military officer disclosed that, “As such, the Air Component dispatched an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft to monitor activities at the location.

“The aircraft later confirmed the intel to be accurate having sighted over fifty (50) of the bandits indulging in the festivities.

“Consequently, situation report was relayed and a NAF aircraft was scrambled to undertake the mission."

He added that, “On arrival, the aircraft observed over fifty (50) bandit-terrorists and engaged them with rockets and cannons in successive passes.”

Another person disclosed to PRNigeria that many bandits were killed while others sustained injuries.

The officer said that, "The terrorists suffered heavy casualties as many as 27 were decimated while others sustained various degree of injuries. 

"Among those killed include bandit leader Sule who is brother to major bandit Lalbi Ginshima."
