The Troops of the 271 Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Detachment, Birnin Gwari on Thursday, 9 January 2020, foiled an ambush set up by over 70 armed bandits at Ungwan Yako along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road in Kaduna State. The gallant troops were able to fight their way through the ambush to the side of Birnin Gwari road killing several bandits in the process.

The engagement along the Birnin Gwari road, unfortunately, saw one NAF personnel paid the supreme price in the process while some sustained varying degrees of injury, the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola reports.

Stating further, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said, “the deceased airman identified as Aircraftman Mukhtar Ibrahim, is scheduled to be buried today in accordance with Islamic rites while the injured personnel are currently receiving treatment at the NAF Hospital in Kaduna”.

“The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, on behalf all officers, airmen, airwomen and civilian staff of the NAF, commiserates with the family of the fallen hero and prays that the Almighty grants his soul peaceful repose.

The CAS has urged all NAF personnel to remain resolute and continue to work assiduously, in synergy with sister Services and other security agencies, to rid the Northwest of all criminal elements” the statement added.
