Five kingpins of armed bandits’ groups in Zamfara State have been killed by air bombardments around Baranda forest, PRNigeria reports.

They were eliminated by attack jets of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) that have sustained aggressive raids at forests, housing bandits in the North West State.

The slain kingpins, namely: Hussaini Rabe, Murtala Sabe, Basiru Nasiru, Sama and Isah, were said to be loyal to a notorious bandit chief known as Abu Redde, it was gathered.
