1 min read

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says its fighter planes have destroyed an Islamic State
of West Africa Province (ISWAP) hiding place at Arrinna Ciki on the fringes of the Lake Chad in the Northern part of Borno State.

NAF’s Director of Publicity Relations and Information(PRO), Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, disclosed this in a statement to Channels Television on Sunday.

He explained that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole carried out the airstrikes between Friday and Saturday, leading to the death of some ISWAP fighters.

According to Daramola, these follow intelligence reports that the insurgents were using the settlement as a staging area to launch attacks on security forces.

He noted that the airstrike on Friday was initiated after a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, on validating reconnaissance mission spotted some ISWAP vehicles under some trees in the area.

The NAF spokesperson said, “the ATF scrambled its fighter jets to attack the location, recording successful strikes to immobilize the vehicles.”

“Similarly, a follow-up attack was executed on 2 November after significant activity was observed in another part of the settlement.

“This occasioned the detailing of attack aircraft to engage the identified areas resulting in the destruction of some terrorists’ structures as well as the neutralization of some of their fighters,” he added.

According to the air Commodore, says NAF will sustain its efforts to fully destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the North-east while operating in concert with surface forces.
