In a bid to sustained offensive against criminal elements in the North East of the Country, the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has eliminated some Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists and destroyed compounds housing them at Kaza along the Gulumba Gana – Kumshe axis of Borno State.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, by the Coordinator Defence Media Operations (DMOs), Major General John Enenche.
General Enenche revealed that, the air strike was executed on 1 September 2020 following credible Human Intelligence reports as well as confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions indicating a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the settlement.
He also said, the identified locations within the settlement were therefore attacked by fighter jets and helicopter gunships dispatched by the Air Task Force, resulting in the destruction of the structures and the neutralization of some of the ISWAP fighters.
