Air Force
The Nigerian Air Force said more terrorists have been neutrilized through air strikes in their hideouts in northern Borno.
According to its spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the strikes were carried out after intelligence reports have indicated the presence of the terrorists in the area.
He said in a statement that structures belonging to the terrorists were also destroyed during the strikes.
Air Commodore Daramola said:”The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has degraded an Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) Terrorists’ hideout and neutralized some of their fighters at Tumbun Zarami in the Northern part of Borno State.
” This was accomplished through air strikes conducted today, 8 April 2019, as part of the ongoing air campaign of Operation YANCIN TAFKI, which is aimed at flushing out ISWAP elements from islands on the fringes of the Lake Chad.
” A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, on a routine reconnaissance mission, observed significant presence of ISWAP fighters in the settlement, with several structures and equipment spotted beneath the thick vegetation of the area.
” Accordingly, the ATF scrambled 2 NAF Alpha Jets to attack the location, recording successful strikes on the terrorists’ structures and neutralizing several of their fighters.
” The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its operations to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast. “
