Exclusive Video Of Nigeria Air Force strikes suspected Boko Haram’s Locations In Borno

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), on Sunday, released a video of its air strikes at suspected Boko Haram terrorists locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa Northeastern Borno State on Friday, September 16,  2016.

Meanwhile in the video released today by NAF, some Boko Haram terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when NAF jets were scrambled to hit the locations.

Speaking on the development, NAF spokesman, Group Captain, Ayodele Famuyiwa, noted that the strikes were as a result of successive Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by NAF platforms.

According to him,  “The air strikes were as a result of ground based intelligence and successive Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by NAF platforms.

“In a video released by the NAF, some of the terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when NAF jets were scrambled to hit the locations.

“A post-strike battle damage assessment of the the strikes revealed that the rendezvous was badly damaged with many casualties while those far from the vicinity could be seen scrambling to safety.

“The aircraft involved in the air strikes are the NAF F-7Ni and the Alpha jets. The air offensive of the NAF has continued to deny the terrorists any hiding place and room for maneuver.

“This has enabled unhindered advance by the surface forces as part of the ongoing Operation GAMA AIKI.

“It will be recalled that the NAF had, in an earlier operation successfully conducted air strikes on BHT Camps at Tumbin Rego on 26 August which led to the death of many high ranking members of the group.” The statement added.
