The Nigerian Air Force has launched the second phase of its operation in the counter terrorism war with focus on the northern axis of Borno State.

The operation, tagged “Operation Gama Aiki” is to flush out insurgents from the area, notorious as a major stronghold of the outlawed group.

Air Component Commander of the mother Operation Lafiya Dole, Peter Uzezi, said that this phase of the onslaught follows a successful outing in Sambisa forest under the aegis of “Operation Crackdown” in collaboration with ground troops.

Six fighter jets have been deployed with specific instructions to the northern axis area.

Three out of the six aircrafts are Alfa jets, expected to patrol the Monguno axis and advance with ground troops towards Alagarno where operations are ongoing.

The other three are MIF7 jets heading towards Diffa general area in Niger Republic enroute Baga local government to effect logistic re-supply to troops operating in Baga and surrounding towns.

Uzezi charged the fighters to sustain coordinated airstrikes and interdiction with ground troops as well as the Multi National Joint Task Force. (Channels TV)
