69

In a significant operation conducted by the Nigerian Air Force, terrorists in Zurmi, Gusau, and Maradun Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Zamfara State were effectively neutralized on April 10, 2024.

The strikes targeted the camps of notorious terrorist figures Abdullahi Nasanda and Mallam Tukur, resulting in the destruction of several terrorist elements and structures.

The meticulously planned mission began with Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations over Abdullahi Nasanda’s Camp in Zurmi LGA and Mallam Tukur’s Camp in Gusau LGA. The ISR missions revealed terrorist activities in the form of huts, thatched roof structures, and hidden motorcycles, all indicative of their presence. Multiple aircraft passes were then executed, effectively eliminating a significant number of terrorists in each location.

Furthermore, the air strikes were extended to Kani kawa in Maradun town, located in Maradun LGA, where terrorists, their hideouts, and equipment were successfully targeted and destroyed.

Director of Public Relations and Information Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, confirmed the success of the operations, highlighting the destruction of terrorist infrastructure in the region.

The operation marks a significant victory in the fight against terrorism in Zamfara State, demonstrating the Nigerian Air Force’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of the region.
