The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) say the air component of Operation Lafiya Dole has recorded another major success in its air campaign against Boko Haram terrorists as two of its F-7Ni fighter aircraft struck a terrorists’ location at Northern Borno.

A statement issued by NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa indicates that the location lies between Tumbum Rego and Malkonory and is about 25km from Kangarwa where surface forces are currently harboured. The location harbours Boko Haram terrorist makeshift structures and about 4-6 clusters of solar panels which are used by the terrorists to power communications equipment and for lighting.

The latest strike is said to be part of the air operations conducted by the NAF in support of the efforts by surface forces and the Multi National Joint Task Force to rid the northern part of Borno of the remnants of Boko Haram in an operation codenamed “Operation Gama Aiki.”

The location, according to the statement, prior to the strike, had been under surveillance for a while but was reported active by a NAF Beechcraft aircraft on Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission. Thereafter, the Fighter aircraft were immediately scrambled for interdiction.

“The success of this operation is another major setback for the Boko Haram even as the NAF intensifies air operations in the Northeast against the insurgents. More so, it is instructive to note that the mission on Wednesday was conducted by crew amid the Salah celebration. This brings to fore the commitment of NAF personnel towards successfully bringing the hostility in the Northeast to an end within the shortest possible time,” the statement read.
