The Nigerian Army says 12 of the terrorists that attacked the Kaduna international airport on Saturday were killed in an airstrike.
The terrorists also shot and killed a security official attached to the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, which forced workers at the airport to flee.
“The bandits’ attack started around 12am (Saturday). They started attacking the airport around midnight. The bandits alleged that the military personnel took away their cattle.
“The military was able to repel them that midnight and we thought that was all. In fact, our staff resumed work this morning as usual. They worked around the runway from 5am till around 12pm,” a source said.
