NAF airstrikes k!ll 30 terrorists in Katsina

The airstrikes were carried out on May 27 at a terrorist kingpin’s hideouts in Bakai, Bakarya, Yartsintsiya in Kankara Local Government Area of the state.

NAF’s spokesperson, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, announced this in a statement on Wednesday, May 29.

He said credible intelligence confirmed that the terrorist kingpin, Babura, “narrowly escaped” the airstrikes.

Gabkwet said: “Similar air strikes were also carried out by the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai on the same day at Tumbun Fulani, near Lake Chad, against terrorists at a once abandoned hideout.

“The strikes were authorized after Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions observed a pattern that was consistent with the relocation of terrorists to new hideouts and movement of their logistics.”
