Eye9ja reports that the NAF struck the terrorists at their hideout in Kollaram on the fringes of Lake Chad in the Northern part of Borno.
Director of Public Relations and Information of the NAF, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
Daramola said the operation was conducted through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE on Saturday. He added that the insurgents were obliterated as they assembled for a meeting in the same area.
“The operation was executed on Dec. 14, following credible intelligence reports indicating that some of the ISWAP leaders had assembled for a meeting in one of two buildings at the centre of the settlement.
“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets dispatched by the ATF to attack the location scored accurate hits on the target building completely obliterating it and killing its terrorists’ occupants,” he said.
Daramola said that the Nigerian Air Force, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of terrorists in the North East.
