"The air interdiction mission at Tsibiri, which is located 15Km East of Zurmi, was executed on the heels of credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports indicating that the camp, with its clusters of thatched huts nestled close to a group of trees, was being used by the bandits to house their fighters and store their weapons and ammunition.

"Those captured are in custody for interrogations.

"Additionally, troops destroyed the Daban Jabi camp of a notorious Bandit Leader known as Dan Jangeru. 
"Also at Warnu village 2 bandits were neutralized while others escaped with gunshot wounds, one AK  47 rifle was recovered in the process.
