It was a bad time for Boko Haram members during the  Eid el Fitr celebrations, as their location was bombarded from above.

Daily Post reports that two X F-7Ni Airforce jets destroyed terrorists' location in the Northern part of Borno state.

According to the Airforce Director of Public Relations and Information, Ayodele Famuyiwa“The location, as can be seen from the enclosed footage, harbours BHT makeshift structures and about 4-6 clusters of solar panels which are used by the Terrorists to power communications equipment and for lighting.

“The latest strike is part of the air operations conducted by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in support of the efforts by own surface forces and the Multi National Joint Task Force to rid the northern part of Borno of the remnants BHTs in an operation codenamed “OPERATION GAMA AIKI.”

Famuyiwa  also added that “The location, prior to the strike, had been under surveillance for sometimes but was reported active by a NAF Beechcraft aircraft on Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission. Thereafter, the Fighter aircraft were immediately scrambled for interdiction.

“The success of this operation is another major setback for the BHTs even as the NAF intensifies air operations in the Northeast against the insurgents. More so, it is instructive to note that the mission yesterday was conducted by crew amid the Sallah celebration.

“This brings to fore the commitment of NAF personnel towards successfully bringing the hostility in the Northeast to an end within the shortest possible time.”
