The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), on Sunday said it has neutralised numerous terrorist elements at Tsauni Doka in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the Director of Public Relations and Information, NAF, stated this in a statement in Abuja.
Gabkwet said that the air interdiction mission was carried out by the NAF component of Operation Whirl Punch.
According to him, the strikes were carried out after credible intelligence revealed the presence of a terrorist kingpin known as Boderi and his foot soldiers at Tsauni Doka.
He said the air strikes were conducted on the location in the early hours of November 16, with devastating consequences on the terrorists.
“Both strikes were termed very successful as several terrorists were neutralised and their motorcycles destroyed,” he said.
“Boderi and his brother Nasiru, alongside their cohorts, have been blamed for several attacks and abductions along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road as well as in several communities in Niger and Kaduna States.”
