The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has bomb a newly discovered Boko Haram new hideout about one nautical mile south of Tumbum Rego in northern Borno.
A statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa said “NAF fighter jets and helicopter gunship successfully assaulted the location in a coordinated day and night operation.
It said the “operation followed Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) report that Boko Haram insurgents who attacked Nigerian Surface Forces at Kangarwa the night of 12 January 2017 had withdrawn to the said location”.
“The footage of the Battle Damage Assessment indicated that the operation was successful as the insurgent’s hideout was successfully destroyed” he said.
He recalled that the “NAF, of recent, has intensified aerial patrol over the entire operation in the North East, as well as offensive mission around the Green Belt region near Niger and Chad Republics.
“The renewed effort is aimed at denying the remnants of the insurgents the opportunity to regroup and launch attack on own Surface Forces or people within the host communities”, Famuyiwa added.
