The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), in a significant blow to terrorist activities in Zamfara State, has successfully executed precision air strikes, resulting in the elimination of numerous terrorists.

The operations targeted the hideouts of notorious kingpins, Abdullahi Nasanda in the Zurmi Local Government Area and Mallam Tukur in the Gusau Local Government Area on April 10.

The spokesperson of NAF, Air Vice Marshall Edward Gabkwet, revealed in a statement on April 11 that the strikes were the culmination of comprehensive Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

The successful air strikes are part of a broader counter-terrorism initiative by the Nigerian military, which continues to intensify its campaigns against insurgent groups causing unrest in parts of the country.
