Boko Haram: Air Forces Destroys ISWAP Storage Base In Borno

The logistics storage facilities of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) at Kirta Wulgo on the fringes of Lake Chad in Northern Borno has been destroyed by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Air Task Force (ATF).

This was made known in a statement on Tuesday by NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola.

Daramola disclosed that NAF deployed aircraft to the location to destroy the ISWAP logistics base after credible intelligence and confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

He said: “The operation was executed after credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports indicated that three green-roofed buildings at the edge of the settlement were being used as warehouses by the ISWAP elements to store their food, vehicle spares, gunboats and other logistics items.

“Accordingly, the ATF, after carrying out confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, dispatched its attack aircraft to engage the location scoring devastating hits in successive strikes leading to the destruction of the buildings.”
