An Alpha Jet of the Nigerian Air Force has bombed a location in Tumbum Gini in the northern part of Borno State.

The area is believed to be the logistics base of the Boko Haram terrorists.

A number of the insurgents were killed while structures and vehicles were destroyed in the process.

Our correspondent learnt that the strike was conducted by troops of the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole on Friday.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, in a statement on Saturday, said an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft from the Niger Republic also took part in the operation.

He said the team conducted the damage assessment for the mission which enabled the jet strikes to degrade the terrorists.

He added that the air strikes killed “all the terrorists in the location”, while the base was engulfed in fire.

 Adesanya said, “The Air Task Force of Lafiya Dole in the early hours of Friday destroyed a Boko Haram terrorists’ logistics base at Tumbum Gini in the northern axis of Borno.

“The Battle Damage Assessment revealed that the first wave of the Alpha Jet aircraft strike on the location totally destroyed the vehicles and other logistics at the place thereby degrading the terrorists’ capabilities.”
