NAF airstrike kills several terrorists in Borno


The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, fighter jets, on Wednesday, killed several terrorists in an airstrike mission near Degbewa and Chinene in Borno State.

NAF Spokesperson, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet announced this in a statement on Thursday.

According to Gabkwet, the airstrikes destroyed several terrorists’ structures in the two terrorist hideouts in the Mandara mountain.

He said the airstrike became necessary after several days of aerial surveillance over Chinene and Degbewa revealed a large gathering of terrorists.

He said: “The terrorists were also observed to be loitering within the vicinity, clearly oblivious of what was to befall them, and probably confident that their location was safe and secured from any form of military bombardments.

“The airstrikes were thus authorised with the aircraft bombarding the locations in several passes until the majority of the terrorists were eliminated. Others observed fleeing the location were taken out using canons.”

Saga Gist recalls several reports of terrorist activities and the recent suicide attacks that killed 32 people and injured 52 others in Gwoza in Borno State.
