“On sighting the aircraft, the bandits ran and hide in between the cattle, while navigating their movement.

“After clustering at a water crossing point, the bandits were struck in successive passes by the aircraft.

“Some casualties that were spotted to be struggling to scamper for safety were also successfully neutralized by the aircraft.

“A reverse trail back to their initial departure point revealed a possible logistics base which was also struck until it went into flames.

“Sources on the ground at Kawara on Monday confirmed that at least 50 dead bodies of the bandits were counted while their motorcycles and food items were destroyed at the camps during the attack,” he said.
