This was achieved yesterday, 15 September 2020, as part of air interdiction missions being executed under subsidiary Operation WUTAN DAJI 2 to rid the North West of the Country of armed bandits and other criminal elements.
“The location was designated for attack after Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports and confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, established that the cluster of huts and other structures at the edge of the Forest served as a hideout for notorious bandits’ leaders’ Sani Mochoko’ and ‘Damina’ and some of their fighters. Accordingly, the Air Component scrambled Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets and helicopter gunships to attack the location.
