The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has lost one of its Special Forces (SF) personnel in a gun battle in Zamfara State.

The troop died as troops of Operation Hadarin Daji neutralised 30 bandits near Yar-Katsina in Bungudu Local Government Area.

Director of Public Relations and Information, NAF Headquarters, AVM Ibikunle Daramola, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

The soldiers responded when scores of bandits and a large number of rustled livestock were spotted heading towards Kekuwuje Yar-Katsina Road.

They chased the bandits and cornered them at the Maje Riverline.

Aircraftman Sunday Enwa lost his life.

Three others, who sustained gunshot wounds during the operation, were evacuated for medical treatment.

Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar has commiserated with his family.

He prayed that God grants Enwa’s soul peaceful repose.

Abubakar urged NAF personnel to remain resolute and continue to work with other security agencies to rid the North-West of all criminal elements.
