Armed bandits had been killed in two airstrikes carried out by the military in northwest Nigeria's Kaduna State, an official said on Wednesday.

Samuel Aruwan, the commissioner for the internal security and home affairs in the Kaduna state, said in a statement that the troops launched airstrikes on some camps of the bandits earlier in the day, killing "an unspecified number of bandits."

The locations were identified as bandit hideouts after thorough checks and analysis of various intelligence reports, Aruwan said.

The northern region of the most populous African country has been troubled by bandit attacks.
