The Nigerian Military High Command says, the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole on September 1, 2020, has eliminated some Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists and destroyed compounds housing them at Kaza along the Gulumba Gana – Kumshe axis of Borno State.
This is in continuation of the sustained offensive against criminal elements in the North East of the Country.
This was contained in an official statement signed by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters Abuja, Maj. Gen. John Enenche and made available to News headquarter on Wednesday.
Gen. Enenche noted that the airstrikes were executed following credible Human Intelligence reports as well as confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions indicating a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the settlement.
“The identified locations within the settlement were therefore attacked by fighter jets and helicopter gunships dispatched by the Air Task Force, resulting in the destruction of the structures and the neutralization of some of the ISWAP fighters.”
The Military High Command had since congratulated the troops for their responsiveness, professionalism and dexterity employed during the operations, they were urged to sustain the tempo.
