The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says it’s Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists’ vehicle and some logistics infrastructure at Tumbun Sale and Tumbun Allura on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information , Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, who’d disclosed this in a statement on Monday explained that the operation was conducted on 8 March 2019 on the heels of intelligence reports.

He said the intelligence reports indicated the presence of ISWAP fighters along with some vehicles and logistics support items well camouflaged under the dense vegetation within the settlements.

“Accordingly, a Nigerian Air Force Alpha Jet, supported by an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, was dispatched to attack the terrorists’ hideouts in successive strikes resulting in damage to several structures as well as the destruction of one of the terrorists’ vehicles, which was seen engulfed in flames.” Daramola said.
