The Nigerian Airforce (NAF) on Saturday said it neutralised several bandits who assembled for a meeting on an Island in the Tumbuns on Lake Chad and at Malam Fatori.

Edward Gabkwet, Air Commodore, Director of Public Relations and Information Nigerian Air Force, disclosed this on Saturday morning.

He said NAF received credible Intelligence on 20th October, 2021, that about 20 boats with suspected Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists were going to converge on the above locations.

According to him, following the credible information, NAF aircraft under Operation Hadin Kai were scrambled to carry out strikes on the targets.

“Reaching overhead the targets, the pilots observed a gathering of about 20 boats consisting of 5-7 suspected terrorists in each boat,” he said.

The NAF spokesman added that using a mixture of bombs and rockets, “the 3 aircraft carried out a series of strikes and scored devastating hits on the targets leaving some survivors scrambling for their lives.”

He said “the operations by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai yet again confirmed the high concentration of terrorists and insurgent elements hibernating in the Lake Chad general area,” adding that “working alongside the Army and Naval components, as well as other security agencies under Operation HADIN KAI, the Air Component will continue to sustain its operation until the area is rid of all terrorists and insurgents.”
