The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), has said that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole, neutralized scores of terrorists and destroyed their hideouts in separate airstrikes conducted at Durbada (also known as Bula Mongoro), Abaganaram and Tumbun Rego in Borno State

This is in continuation of its sustained air offensive against terrorist elements in the Northeast of the country.

In a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore, Ibikunle Daramola, says the raids were executed between 13 and 20 September 2019 based on credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports, which were also corroborated by confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, that identified locations within the settlements that served as hideouts for the terrorists.

The statement further read, “At Durbada, a staging post from where the terrorists launched attacks against own troops locations, the intelligence particularly indicated that a high-value Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) leader had been haboured at the location for a number of days.

“The ATF, therefore, scrambled its aircraft yesterday, 20 September 2919, to attack the identified harbour positions within the settlement. The attack aircraft scored accurate hits on the targeted locations, destroying some of the buildings and neutralizing dozens of the terrorists.

“The earlier attacks on Abaganaram and Tumbun Rego, which are both on the fringes of the Lake Chad, similarly resulted in massive destruction of the terrorists’ structures as well as the killing of several Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters”, the statement added.

The NAF spokesman said the force will sustain the tempo of effort, operating in concert with surface forces, to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast of the country. (Channels TV)
