Military Jets Bombard;Smoke Out Bandits In Zamfara State!

Information reaching Themeteornewshub indicate that Nigerian Airforce fighter jets have carried out series of  attacks on camps of bandits and terrorists spread across Zamfara State.

Military sources said the well coordinated bombardments using the newly acquired tucano jets, hit the camps including those in Shakafi Local Government Area of the State with forensic accuracy.

Taken aback at the turn of events,it was learnt that scores of the bandits whose camps and foot soldiers have been decapacitated are calling for a cessation of hostilities. But sources said it is going to be a battle for the soul of the State.

The State Governor Bello Matawalle has in the meantime,cancelled his trips outside the State during the period of the massive operations launched against bandits.

Recall that last week, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) directed telecommunication companies to disconnect their networks in the State as parts of measures to tackle insecurity and a prelude to the air offensive.

In an interview with Deutsche Welle radio, the Governor said the operation against bandits has yielded tremendous result.

He said bandits are being forced to release people in captivity because they can not feed them due to the blockade of food, fuel and means of communication.

He said people that have spent weeks or months in captivity have returned to their homes and armed gangs are abandoning their motorbikes because they have run out of fuel.

“The Chief of Army Staff was in the State to assess the operations. Troops and the local vigilantes are currently being mobilized to reach to out to the armed criminals in their hideouts inside forests.”

“I’m not going anywhere, I will remain in the State throughout the period of these operations. I must share the pains of disruption of the telecommunication services with the good people of the State.”

“As you can see, check points have been mounted after every five kilometres throughout the state so that no criminal will have escape or access route.”

“All telecommunications services have been disrupted in Zamfara State to deny bandits and their local collaborators means of communication”he said.
