Dankolo and Machitta villages in the state.
In a press statement on Saturday by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, “The bandits and the rustled livestock were subsequently spotted by a Nigerian Air Force aircraft on a reconnaissance mission at Kaboru village heading towards Kwiambana Forest.

Footage showed the chopper bombing the outlaws as they fled in different directions on sighting the aircraft.
