“I want to inform you that, just yesterday, many of these criminals terrorizing our communities in Zamfara were killed by men of the Nigeria Air Force under Operation Diran Makoda.
He said the operation will continue with all the deserved seriousness until the peace we used to know is restored, “he maintained.
