Several key Boko Haram terrorists/ISWAP leaders have been killed and their structures destroyed in air strikes conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE at Durbada in Borno State.

The operation was executed on 17 April 2020 on the heels of credible Human Intelligence (HUMINT) reports, which were confirmed by series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, indicating that the settlement was one of the locations where some of the terrorists’ hierarchy often hibernate.

Major General John Enenche, Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters in a statement on Monday, 20th April made available to Naija News confirmed that fighter jets dispatched by the Air Task Force took turns in attacking the location scoring accurate hits within the target area which resulted in the death of some of the terrorists. Others, who were seen attempting to flee the area, were taken out in follow-on attacks.

He added that the Armed Forces of Nigeria, in furtherance of the objective of restoring peace and security in the North East, will sustain the offensive against the enemies of our Nation.

Meanwhile, Naija News earlier reported that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai has relocated to the North East to personally supervise troop activities targeted at wiping out the insurgents from Nigeria.
