Troops of the Nigerian Military have neutralised several bandit and destroyed their camps in Sokoto and Katsina forests.
It was gathered that Nigerian Airforce attached to Operation Hadarin Daji bombarded bandits camps in Mashema, Yanfako, Gebe, and Gatawa Forests all located in Isaa and Sabon Birni local government areas of Sokoto State.

According to military sources, the strikes were executed on October 5, 2021.
“We observed that structures and logistics items camouflaged under the dense vegetation, were being used as staging areas where some bandits from Turji and Maigona Camps and their fighters meet to plan and launch attacks,” a source told PRNigeria.

“Accordingly, the Theatre dispatched a force package of Air Force fighter jets and helicopter gunships to engage the locations. According to local sources in the area, the attack aircraft scored devastating hits in the target areas, destroying some structures and neutralizing several of the Bandits. The fleeing Bandits survivors were seen by some locals taking refuge in a primary school in Bafarawa Village.”

The banditry camp of one Gajere (SNU) was destroyed and 34 bandits killed in the attack.
