The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), in a series of another well-coordinated air operations conducted on August 29, 2016, successfully attacked a Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) camp at Tumbun Rego in Northern Borno where some wounded commanders of the notorious sect were believed to be receiving treatment.

NAF Director of Public, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, announced this in a statement issued in Abuja o Thursday. He said: “Intelligence report has it that some BHT commanders, who survived the air assault on the night of 20 August 2016 leading to the death of over 300 insurgents, had sustained serious injuries and were said to have relocated subsequently to the Camp at Tumbun Rego for medical treatment.

“The latest strike followed the trail of this piece of intelligence to neutralise these suspected leaders of the sect who are high value targets. While the NAF is yet to ascertain the casualty figure, post-strike Battle Damage Assessment mission shows that the degree of damage achieved was devastating as the buildings were engulfed by large fire.”
