The Nigerian Air Force ( NAF) said its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has neutralized several Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters at their hideout near Baga in Northern Borno State.
Ibikunle Daramola, Director of Public Relations and Information said in a statement in Sunday.
He explained that the attack was conducted on saturday, 29 December 2018, after a NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform spotted the terrorists assembled under some trees around the Fish Dam near Baga.
“The ATF therefore dispatched an Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the location. The aircraft multiple attack passes, killing several of the terrorists and causing serious injuries to others.
“The surviving terrorists were mopped-up in subsequent follow on strikes.” He explained
