The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has successfully carried out airstrikes that killed 80 terrorists in Gidan Kare village, Faskare Local Government Area of Katsina State.

The operation, which took place on June 15, also destroyed over 45 motorcycles belonging to the terrorists.

According to a statement released by NAF’s spokesperson, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, “The strikes became necessary following intelligence that terrorists numbering over 100 were reported burning houses at a settlement about 5km away from Gidan Kare Village.”

Gabkwet further stated, “Moments later, 12 motorcycles were seen departing the village and trailed along a footpath out of the village to a location near Gidan Kare Village and Kuka Shidda Camp, where they joined up with a large number of their cohorts. Other terrorists were also observed arriving at the location from different directions, an indication that the location was a massing up point with the terrorists likely planning to further attack nearby villages.”

Having been presented with this opportunity, authorization was sought and obtained, and the location was immediately struck at exactly 9:40pm, with over 80 terrorists confirmed eliminated and about 45 motorcycles burnt down, while few surviving terrorists were observed fleeing or limping off.

Gabkwet added, “Further intelligence received after the strike also revealed that the terrorists were closely linked with notorious terrorist kingpin Yusuf Yellow and his close associate Rabe Imani.”

The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Hasan Abubakar, commended the efforts of the Air Component of Operation Hadarin Daji for the feat achieved.
