Army kills 20 daring bandits, heading towards Nigerian Defence Academy

 Army kills 20 daring bandits, heading towards Nigerian Defence Academy

No fewer than 20 armed bandits have been neutralised by  Air Troops of Operation Thunder Strike at the General area of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA).

The bandits, riding on over 50 motorcycles on Thursday evening, were said to be moving towards the Academy, in Kaduna State,

Following a tip-off on movement of bandits through the military school’s general areas on Thursday, two Nigerian Air Force (NAF) helicopter gunships were dispatched to engage the criminals, who had taken off from DAMARI village in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.

According to PRNigeria, an online news medium, the bandits, in their numbers, were sighted in makeshift tents and motorcycles amounting up to 50.

“On sighting the aircraft, the bandits started fleeing into the fringes of the forest. This brought about an objective and very decisive rain of hell from above on the miscreants as surviving bandits seen to be scampering for safety from the superior air presence were effectively mopped up.

 “Moreso as it is customary, feedback received on Friday after the operation from both the ground forces and local sources, revealed that the bandits were effectively disoriented and suffered a loss of about 20 bandits.”

“Also, their plans of harassing and shaming the Nigerian Defence Academy and the Government of the day were effectively thwarted,” he said. THE NATION
