Troops Eliminate Sixteen Bandits In Zamfara

No fewer than sixteen bandits have been eliminated in Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State by troops of the Nigeria Air Force.

The bandits were eliminated when the NAF Air components targeted a wanted terrorists kingpin identified as Gwoska Dankarami. 

PRNigeria reports that the attack was well-planned and coordinated by the troops.

Many of the foot soldiers of the terrorist kingpin were eliminated during the attack while others sustained injuries. 

However, a security source revealed that Dankarami was reported to have escaped during the attack. 

A defence intelligence operative who pleaded anonymity told PRNigeria that the operation was carried out by the Air Component of the Operation Hadarin Daji in the North-West. 

“A reliable and impeccable source privy to the modus operandi of the terrorist kingpin has confirmed overhearing the terrorist lamenting on the determination of the military to eliminate him and his family.

“He was also heard to have complained bitterly on the New Year’s Eve air strikes, which lasted for several hours, killing over 16 of his cohorts and destroyed his newly built house as well as his enclave", the source said.

Dankarami also expressed profound concern over the dire situation he has found himself in since it was becoming obvious that the military are bent on eliminating him at all cost.

The source also stated that Dankarami has not been himself since the air strikes by NAF aircraft at Mutunji Village in Dansadau Emirate Council of Zamfara State a fortnight ago, which eliminated over 100 terrorists, some of whom were his close associates.

The spokesperson of the NAF, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, also confirmed the incident.

“The directive of the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, that there is no hiding place for all terrorists and their supporters wherever they may be remains active even as we cross into the New Year."
