The Nigerian Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has neutralized and destroyed the hideout of the Boko Haram Terrorists Group at Kirta Wulgo at the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.
According to the NAF Image maker Ibikunle Daramola, this was after persistent Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that the settlement was being used as a staging area from where the terrorists launch attacks against own troops’ positions.
“Consequently, the ATF dispatched its aircraft to attack identified compounds within the settlement. Overhead the target area, scores of ISWAP fighters were observed attempting to flee upon sighting the attack platforms. The aircraft took turns in engaging the location, scoring accurate hits which led to the destruction of some structures as well as the killing of several terrorists”.
He said that NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.
