NAF fighter jet eliminates scores of ISWAP terrorists, destroys new training camp in Borno


The Nigerian Air Force, (NAF), under the Air Component of Operation HADIN Kai, has neutralised scores of terrorists in ISWAP’s training camp in Bukar Mairam, Marte local government area of Borno state.

Intelligence sources told Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad region that the air strikes were conducted on Saturday in the location.

Makama quoted the sources as saying, “The air strikes at Bukar Mairam were planned and executed based on intelligence reports indicating that the insurgents had established a training camp in the village and were converging in an area prior to departing for an attack on troops’ locations around the Lake Chad area”.

The sources said the fighter aircraft acquired and attacked the locations, neutralising scores of the ISWAP with only a few survivors seen fleeing the area.

They also added that some of the terrorists’ logistics and other property were similarly destroyed
