Bandit leaders, Kachalla, Auta, others killed as military raids Zamfara forest, village on New Year

Wanted bandit leaders, Alhaji Auta, and Kachalla Ruga, have been killed in a forest in Zamfara State, according to reports.

The notorious bandit commanders reportedly 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, on Friday night.

Multiple airstrikes by the NAF jet, which were carried out in the early hours of yesterday, also eliminated Auta and Ruga’s cohorts, it was learnt. Sources confirmed that dozens of bandits who had converged at the Late Auta’s residence, for his burial were also struck by missiles of the military jet, with an unconfirmed number killed in the process.

A military intelligence officer told newsmen that follow-up airstrikes conducted by the NAF fighter aircraft on fleeing bandits and those who took cover under trees within the area resulted in heavy casualties on the side of the criminals.

It was further gathered from the military source that aggressive bombardments by NAF aircrafts, have in recent times been very precise and effective in hitting bandits’ enclaves, eliminating their leaderships and followers in the process.
