Armed bandits killed in airstrikes in NW Nigeria: officially

Armed bandits were killed in two military air strikes in the northwestern Nigerian state of Kaduna, an official said on Wednesday.

The locations were identified as bandit hideouts after thorough scrutiny and analysis of various intelligence reports, Aruwan said.
