The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) meeting venue at Jabullam in Northern Borno State. The attack was carried out on 28 September, following intelligence reports indicating that some buildings within the settlement were being used for meetings attended by BHT leaders.
Accordingly, following confirmatory intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions which identified the target building and surrounding structures, the ATF detailed a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet aircraft, which attacked the location and recorded direct hits on the target leading to the obliteration of the building and neutralisation of the BHT occupants.
The NAF said that working in concert with surface forces would sustain the momentum of operations with a view to destroying remnants of the terrorists in the fringes of Lake Chad and other areas in Northern Borno.
According to the Force: “There is a short video clip, which is now declassified and available online for the general public to witness part of the air strikes.”
