Wanted notorious bandit leaders, Alhaji Auta and Kachalla Ruga have been reportedly killed inside Zamfara forest by military air-strikes.
The notorious bandit commanders met their waterloo after a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft, under Operation Hadarin Daji, acted on credible intelligence and bombarded their enclaves at Gusami Forest and Tsamre Village in Birnin Magaji Local Government Area of the State, last night.
Security sources say multiple airstrikes by the NAF jet, which were carried out in the early hours of Saturday, also eliminated Auta and Ruga’s cohorts.
Sources confirm that dozens of bandits who had converged on the late Auta’s residence for his burial were also struck by missiles from the military jet, with an unconfirmed number killed in the process.
Quest gathered that military operations are ongoing at the time of filing this report.
