The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has attacked and destroyed the terrorists’ vehicle at Tumbun Sale and Tumbun Allura in Borno state.
Naija News understands that the Air Task Force (ATF) of the operation Lafiya Dole of the NAF, destroyed some logistics infrastructure of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) on the fringes of Lake Chad in the state.
The NAF’s spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, when he explained that the operation was conducted following intelligence reports indicating the presence of ISWAP fighters with some vehicles and logistic support.
Daramola in his statement said; “items were “well camouflaged under the dense vegetation within the settlements.”
”Accordingly, a NAF Alpha Jet, supported by an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, was dispatched to attack the terrorists’ hideouts in successive strikes resulting in damage to several structures as well as the destruction of one of the terrorists’ vehicles, which was seen engulfed in flames.”
The spokesman while re-emphasizing the force’s commitment, assured that the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the North East.
