Air Force Bombs Boko Haram Location In Borno

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jet has struck Boko Haram insurgents hiding at Tagoshe/Mandara Mountain, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Capt. Ayodele Famuyiwa said.

Famuyiwa said that intelligence report by sister surface forces indicated that remnants of fleeing insurgents were gathered at the location, about 10 kms Southwest of Gwoza in northern Borno state.

“This report was confirmed by NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft before combat platforms were called in to strike the location.

“Follow-up battle damage assessment confirmed that the air attack was successful as shown by the enclosed declassified footage of the operation,” he said.

NAF had in the past few weeks been bombarding remnants of the insurgents’ locations and hideouts in the North-East, especially in northern part of Borno State.
