Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft, part of Operation Whirl Punch (OPWP), have eliminated numerous terrorists/bandits linked to assaults and abductions on the Abuja-Kaduna highway and in the Birnin Gwari area of Kaduna state.
Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the Director of NAF Public Relations and Information, verified that the strikes effectively targeted and neutralized several terrorist groups in Tsauni Doka, located in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to him, “The strikes became necessary following credible intelligence which revealed the presence of terrorist kingpin known as Boderi and his foot soldiers at Tsauni Doka.
“Subsequently, air strikes were carried out on the location in the early hours of 16 November 2023, 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.
“Both strikes were termed very successful as several terrorists were neutralized and their motorcycles destroyed.
“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 Niger and Kaduna States.
Air Commodore Gabkwet affirmed that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) plans to maintain ongoing air strikes against terrorists in the Northwest and North Central regions of the country. The NAF intends to persist in decimating terrorist elements until they abandon their criminal activities.
