The Eid-el-Fitr celebration on Friday was a bad day for Boko Haram terrorists, as the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) pounded their base in Parisu and Takwala in Borno state.

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, neutralized many of the Boko Haram fighters through the successful air strikes.

AVM Olatokunbo Adesanya, NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, confirmed in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, that the operation was conducted on Friday.

” The mission followed the discovery, by NAF Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, of activities of BHTs in the 2 locations.

” Consequently, the ATF detailed 2 NAF Alpha Jet aircraft, armed with rockets and cannons, to interdict the locations.

“Overhead the objective, the NAF fighter aircraft acquired and attacked the objectives with rockets and cannons.

” At the end of the mission, it was observed that the attack platforms successfully engaged the remnants of the terrorists hibernating within the settlements and consequently neutralized them,” He said.

Adesanya said that the NAF would continue to deploy its platforms to conduct intensive ISR missions aimed at discovering the locations of possible remnants of BHTs in the entire Northeast. (NAN)
