This was disclosed by NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa via a statement.

The statement reads:

A group of terrorists in 7 Hilux vehicles, hiding under tress at a location along the axis of advance of own ground forces towards Kangarawa, north of Borno State.

The attack was successful as 15 members of the BHTs were killed and the whole vehicles knocked out. The casualty figure was confirmed by ground forces, who subsequently consolidated on the gains of the air effort to pursue and inflict further casualty on the fleeing wounded members of the terrorist group.

Troops also confirmed that 2 gun trucks were among vehicles destroyed by the Alpha Jet as 2 x AK-47 rifles, 2 x RPGs and cache of assorted munitions were recovered.

The latest victory against the BHTs brings to fore the important role of air power in counter insurgency operation. In furtherance of this role, the NAF has been relentless in its effort to shape the battle space and provide favourable environment for own surface forces to operate.
