Barely 24 hours after Boko Haram killed over 30 people in Damboa, Borno state, the Nigerian Air force (NAF) revealed that it successfully eliminated some Boko Haram insurgents at Parisu and Takwala in the same state.
Air force spokesman, Olatokunbo Adesanya, revealed that the operation was carried out on Friday via airstrikes.
Mr. Tokunbo said: “The mission followed the discovery, by NAF Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, of activities of Boko Haram terrorists in the two locations. Consequently, the ATF detailed two NAF Alpha Jet aircraft, armed with rockets and cannons, to interdict the locations. Overhead the objective, the NAF fighter aircraft acquired and attacked the objectives with rockets and cannons. At the end of the mission, it was observed that the attack platforms successfully engaged the remnants of the terrorists hibernating within the settlements and consequently neutralized them.”
