Nigerian Airforce Aircraft under operation Whirl Punch-OPWP have sustained airstrikes against terrorists operating in the North-West and North-Central regions of the country leading to the decimation of several criminal elements at Tsaunin Doka in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to a statement by Director of Public Relations and Information of NAF, AirCommodore Edward Gabkwet says the strikes became necessary following credible intelligence revealed the presence of terrorist kingpin known as Boderi and his foot soldiers at Tsaunin Doka.
Subsequently, airstrikes were carried out on the location in the early hours of 16th November, with devastating consequences on the terrorists.
Similar strikes with positive outcomes were also carried out at a location about 500 metres east of Boderi’s hideout, believed to be the hiding place of Boderi’s brother, Nasiru, where several terrorists were neutralised and their motorcycles destroyed.
The statement notes that Boderi and his brother Nasiru, alongside their cohorts, have been blamed for several attacks and abductions along the Abuja-kaduna expressway, Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road, as well as in several communities in Kaduna and Niger States.
