NAF neutralizes terror leaders, fighters as Boko Haram, ISWAP plan election attacks (Updated: Monday, 26th December 2022, 03:12 PM)


Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has confirmed the elimination of more than 100 terrorists, including some of their leaders, in Borno.

Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet informed the public of recent airstrikes in a statement on Sunday.

The interdiction mission was conducted by the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) at Mantari village in the Gezuwa area of the Bama Local Government.

The spokesman announced terrorist kingpins Khalid Tukur, Maimusari, and Bakura Jega were obliterated.

The raid followed intelligence on a Boko Haram commander Ikirima after he moved to Mantari village with his gun trucks.

Gabkwet said after the first wave of strikes, some surviving terrorists found their way back to the same location to evacuate the bodies.

“This provided an opportunity for a follow-up strike which has been confirmed very successful as over 100 terrorists were neutralized with dozens said to be in critical condition.“

Gabkwet disclosed that ISWAP and Boko Haram elements had perfected plans to resume active hostilities during the yuletide and the 2023 elections.

The director said the intelligence on the attempt to attack soft targets in Bama helped in the successful bombardment, “which has reduced their will to regroup and attack citizens”.
