The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Doke, on July 29, 2018 successfully conducted a massive attack on Tongule Village, 9km South West of Dikwa in Borno state.

This was contained in a statement signed by the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI),Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, yesterday.

The statement said the successful air strikes were sequel to a credible intelligence that several Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) were massing up at the location, having occupied the entire village.

He said consequently, the mission was immediately planned and executed to prevent the BHTs from carrying out attacks against troops’ locations in the general area.

Adesanya disclosed that upon receiving the intelligence, the ATF scrambled NAF Alpha Jet aircraft and Mi-35M helicopter gunships, which subsequently attacked structures occupied by BHT elements in the location with bombs rockets and canons, in quick succession, noting that as a result of the air strikes, several BHTs were neutralized in the village while a few survivors seen fleeing the location were taken out in subsequent follow up attacks.

“There was also intensive damage to the settlement as captured by the NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform,” the statement added.
