Unintentionally, a fighter plane targeting terrorists destroyed people in Kunkuna, Safana Local Government Area, Katsina State.

Aminu Umar, an assistant commissioner of police, was murdered by bandits on Tuesday in the local government area of Safana.

Umar and his men had reacted to a request for help when he gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Tuesday also saw an attack on a presidential convoy in Katsina, although not in Safana LGA. Katsina is one of the states in the North-West area experiencing the heat of banditry.

Uncertain are the specifics of the disaster in the village of Kunkuna, but it is reported that many lives were lost.

During the operation initiated against bandit camps in the vicinity, the jet allegedly struck the incorrect targets.

The Nigerian Air Force spokesperson, Edward Gabkwet, was unreachable at the time this report was filed.

Several cases of unintentional bombing involving the Air Force have occurred. On January 17, 2017, one of these occurrences occurred at Rann, a border town in the Kala/Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

A Nigerian Air Force fighter hit a camp for Internally Displaced Persons by accident. They suspected that it was a Boko Haram camp.

The blast killed at least 115 people, including six aid workers from the Red Cross, and injured more than 100.

Four years later, a military plane participating in the North East counterinsurgency operation struck a village in the Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State, killing at least ten civilians.

Yunusari is located in the northern region of Yobe State and has a border with the Niger Republic.

After that, a few additional incidents were documented.
