NAF jet bombards Boko Haram base

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE in the early hours of yesterday, 27 April 2018, destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) logistics base at Tumbum Gini in the northern axis of Borno State.

Nigerien Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft conducted the Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) for the mission.

The BDA revealed that the first wave of a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet aircraft strike on the location totally destroyed the vehicles and other logistics items at the place thereby further degrading the terrorists’ capabilities.

Furthermore, at the end of the attack, the entire BHT location was engulfed in fire and all the terrorists in the location were neutralized.
