The Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, in a combined operation with the Nigerien Air Force, yesterday launched a coordinated air strike on Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) locations at AREGE and TUMBUN RAGO in Borno State.

Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, made the announcement in a statement on Tuesday.

He said the successful attacks followed reports received sequel to an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission conducted by an aircraft belonging to Nigerien Air Force, which revealed BHT activities at AREGE and TUMBUN RAGO.

“Consequently, the ATF detailed Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet and F-7Ni aircraft to conduct Air Interdiction strikes on the locations while the ISR aircraft from Niger provided necessary support and also conducted Battle Damage Assessment (BDA).

“Thereafter, NAF fighter aircraft and the ISR aircraft from Niger again combined to successfully attack BHT locations at TUMBUM RAGO. The combined operations by the air forces of both countries are part of renewed efforts at clearing BHT elements from their known locations in Northeast Nigeria”, the statement concluded.
