The military has said that the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole conducted airstrikes in the hideouts of several Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) elements and destroyed their hideouts.

In a statement released on Saturday by its spokesman John Enenche, the airstrikes were carried out at hideouts of the terrorists at Ngwuri Gana, along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis, as well as at Tumbuma Baba on the fringes of Lake Chad, both in the Northern part of Borno State.

The statement read in parts, “The Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has neutralized several Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) elements and destroyed their hideouts at Ngwuri Gana, along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis, as well as at Tumbuma Baba on the fringes of Lake Chad, both in the Northern part of Borno State.

“The coordinated attacks launched by the Air Task Force, employing an enhanced force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, resulted in the destruction of some of the terrorists’ structures as well as the neutralization of several ISWAP fighters.”
