The Nigerian military says it has neutralised several armed bandits at their camp in the Kuduru forest area of Kaduna State.

According to a statement signed by a military spokesman, John Enenche, the strikes were carried out on August 13.

The airstrikes were carried out by the Air Component of Operation Thunder Strike, a joint military operation with the mission to help rid the country’s North-West of bandits presently terrorising the region.

The destroyed bandit camp, the military said, was occupied by members of an Ansaru Terrorist Sect-linked group led by one Mallam Abba.

The country’s North-West has witnessed a recent rise in bandit-related attacks, contributing to calls for the sack of Service Chiefs.

President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted more needs to be done to protect the region.
