NAF Fighter Jets Kill Boko Haram Terrorists

Published

on

The Nigerian Air Force says in continuation of Operation Thunder Strike 2, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, yesterday, 9 September 2018, destroyed some Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) facilities and neutralised several insurgents at Bukar Meram and Tumbun Allura, both on the fringes of Lake Chad, Borno State.

The director, Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said the attack at Bukar Meram was conducted based on credible human intelligence reports indicating the presence of some BHTs, along with their equipment, within the settlement.

He said the report was confirmed by successive days of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

He noted that the ATF detailed a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet aircraft and helicopter gunship to carry out air interdiction at the location leading to the death of many insurgents.

“Two of the identified locations were subsequently destroyed in strikes by the NAF aircraft and several BHTs neutralised,” he said

Daramola said in a in a similar vein the ISR missions had indicated that some BHTs were attempting to regroup at another location in Tumbun Allura after their bases in the settlement were destroyed on 4 September 2018, adding that the identified location within the town was attacked and destroyed by a combination of NAF Alpha Jet and F-7Ni aircraft to further ensure the insurgents are unable to resume using the settlement as a base of operation.

He pledged the commitment of the Nigerian Air Force to decimate the Terrorists hideouts to restore peace in the Northeast.

“The NAF, working in concert with surface forces, will sustain the momentum of Operation THUNDER STRIKE 2 with a view to seeking out and destroying vestiges of the insurgents in the Lake Chad green fringes,” he said
