The Nigerian Air Force airstrike reportedly killed 22 terrorists loyal to the late bandits’ kingpin, Alhaji Abdulkareen Lawal, aka Abdulkareen Boss, in Batsari and Jibia LGAs of Katsina State

Recalled that a few weeks ago, NAF airstrikes eliminated Abdulkareem Boss and some of his foot soldiers at Ruga Forest in Katsina State.

Also, late Abdulkareem Boss was alleged to have masterminded the killing of the Police Area Commander of Dutsin-ma on July 5, 2022, and several other atrocities.

However, the NAF strikes, which were executed by the air component of Operation Hadarin Daji (OPHD) at Batsari and Sola Poi II, followed credible information that the terrorists were responsible for several abductions and violent attacks on some communities within Kankara LGA of the state.

The source further disclosed that the air component of OPHD, after days of careful planning and coordination, conducted waves of air interdiction missions, killing several terrorists and destroying their structures and hideouts.

NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet confirmed the report but declined to give details.
