Nigerian Air Force Strikes Boko Haram Members
The Nigerian Air force Fighter Jets Have Conducted Successful Strikes Against Boko Haram Terrorists Locations In Tumbin Giri And Tumbin Kayewa, Borno State, northeast Nigeria.
In a video released by the Nigerian Air force on Sunday, some of the terrorists were seen at one of their camps where they were believed to be holding a high level meeting when jets struck them.
Air Force Director Of Public Relations, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said in a statement that several casualties resulted from the strike.
Mr Famuyiwa noted that air operations in the northern Borno region have enabled ground troops to have unhindered movement in the ongoing Operation GAMA AIKI.
The Air Force stated that the achievement followed relentless efforts by the NAF Technical Response Team (TRT).
It says the latest conversion makes it the third alpha jet to be reconfigured under the leadership of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
The alpha jet has been reconfigured to carry both rockets and bombs during combat missions.
