How NAF Airstrikes Decimated Terrorist Targets in Northeast and North Central Regions


Afor Kenneth 

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has reported that airstrikes conducted by the Air Components of Operations Hadin Kai and Whirl Punch in the Northeast and North Central regions have successfully neutralized terrorists and destroyed their structures.

In a statement released on Sunday, NAF spokesman Edward Gabkwet disclosed that insurgents were neutralized on May 3, 2024, at Chinene, a location nestled within the Mandara mountain area near Borno State. The terrorists were observed assembling, likely for a meeting, when they were targeted and neutralized by the airstrikes.

“Within the same location, 7-gun trucks were also observed parked under trees. Accordingly, air interdiction was authorised and conducted over the assembly area and tree coverings to decimate the terrorists and destroy their weapons and mobility.

“After the strike, Battle Damage Assessment footages as feedback received later revealed that the strikes were successful as several terrorists were neutralised and logistics destroyed,” the statement partly read.

Additionally, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) reported that terrorists who were hiding in Allawa village, near Shiroro in Niger State, were also neutralized on the same day.

Gabkwet said, “The mission was conducted following credible intelligence, which had revealed the migration of terrorists into the village after the mass exit of locals for fear of their safety.

“These terrorists had, on 1 May 2024, stormed the deserted Allawa community in the Shiroro Local Government Area (LGA) and torched the Central Primary School.

“In the evening of the same day, another group of terrorists also arrived at the location, wielding AK-47/49 rifles after invading Galapai village in Galadima Kogo District of the same LGA.

“Accordingly, to prevent further occupation as well as pursue the terrorists from the location, the Air Component scrambled a formation of its platforms to attack the location.

“On arrival at the location, several terrorists were sighted and engaged effectively. Furthermore, following credible intelligence as well as detailed aerial observation, which confirmed the presence of their cache of arms hidden inside Allawa Forest, the air component further carried out air strikes at the location.”
