Two bandit leaders, Alaji Gani and Halilu Buzu, have been killed after successful operations by the Nigerian Military.
Alaji Gana was killed on Monday, alongside other terrorists, while in the Kidandan forest, in the Giwa local government Area of Kaduna State.
This was after his fellow insurgent Halilu Buzu was killed in the Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
According to a defence intelligence, the kingpins and their footsoldiers were attacked separately after intelligence revealed their locations.
The Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI (OPHD) destroyed logistics bases that housed ammunition, vehicles, motorcycles, and other loot.
The military source, however told PRNigeria that Buzu was killed alongside his boys, including Ceri, Dan’mosalmi, Danbarkeji, Guguwa, Dan Sha Bakwai and Hana Zuwa.
The late Buzu and his notorious gang reportedly kidnapped civilians for ransom and were also involved in cattle rustling.
