As the military bombs Turji's hideout in Zamfara, many bandits are feared dead.
On Saturday, the Nigerian Air Force blasted a hideaway belonging to the bandit leader Bello Turji in Zamfara State, striking a few of his supporters.

At the time of this report, the incident's specifics were hazy, but INFOGONG learned that numerous robbers were murdered.

During the attack, the bandits' commander, who was apparently in one of his hideouts in the Fakai woodland in the Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara, fled.

Numerous bandits were hurt in the airstrike, according to sources who spoke to INFOGONG, and a number of others were killed.

Turji was reportedly among those affected, according to unconfirmed reports, although a source claimed he narrowly managed to escape with several of his guys.

In recent weeks, the military has intensified its attack against bandits and rebels, eliminating non-state actors wreaking havoc around the nation.

Attacks in Zamfara and other areas of the North West have been led by Turji, who is in charge of a sizable gang.

One of the worst affected regions by the gang violence campaign launched by armed groups is Zamfara. Governor Bello Matawalle has urged citizens to arm themselves in defence after growing attacks despite attempts to contain the situation.

The attacks persisted despite the fact that he had also armed over 7000 community protection guards, which he had raised.

Some communities in the Anka Local Government Area of the State spent at least N19 million and purchased a canoe for bandits as protection levies at the start of the current rainy season.

Turji had repented and embraced peace discussions, according to Alhaji Hassan Nasiha, the deputy governor of Zamfara, before the development.

Nasiha stated during a meeting held by the Medina University Students Union in Saudi Arabia that the bandit leader had given up crime and had begun hunting down unrepentant bandits.

As a result of the bandit peace project, there haven't been any attacks in the Magami district in the past three months.

"The state administration reached a peace agreement with the bandits' leader through the peace committee, and he agreed to renounce crime and support peace.

In the local government regions of Shinkafi, Zurmi, and Birnin Magaji, he had claimed, "Turji is currently murdering unrepentant criminals who inflicted horror on innocent residents."

The military leadership has not yet issued a formal statement regarding the raid on Turji's hideout.
