JUST IN: NAF airstrikes eliminate notorious Zamfara bandit kingpin, Kachalla Damina

The Nigerian Air Force has successfully eliminated the most notorious bandit leader in Zamfara, Kachallah Damina, including scores of his fighters in the state.

The successful air raid occurred following information received about many bandits attempting to attack Corner Village in Bungudu LGA on March 10, 2024.

Damina, who was already battling with injuries after clashes with troops of Operation Hadarin Dajia in Dansadau, was neutralized in the company of scores of bandits on motorcycles.

Impeccable sources told Zagazola Makama that out of the 58 motorcycles carrying bandits and heading for a mission, only 11 fighters returned, many without their fighters.

“More than 50 bandits were neutralized, with several motorcycles destroyed. This attack was the biggest and one of the most devastating against the bandit groups in this area in recent times.

“The armed forces are hunting down prominent terrorist leaders and engaging them wherever they are hiding”, the sources said.

Damina was an indigene of Kankara LGA in Zamfara State and has wreaked havoc in Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara states.

He was known for his savagery and for committing heartless attacks and gruesome killings.

He operated a big camp in the Magami forest in a place known as Kango under the command of Buhari Daji and Nagala.
