The Nigerian Air Force said it has attacked buildings where Boko Haram insurgents were hibernating in Borno State.
Director of the Public Relations and Information, Olatokunbo Adesanya disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
Olatokunbo said it was in furtherance of the recently commenced Operation Ruwan Wuta.
“On September 7, NAF conducted air interdiction on structures with two hoisted insurgents’ organisation flags in Zanari, a known location with significant insurgents’ presence at the northern fringes of Borno bordering Lake Chad,” he said.
“Quite a number of the insurgents had earlier been spotted, from a NAF intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance platform, entering the buildings apparently for meetings.
“The F-7Ni and the Alpha Jet aircraft were detailed to attack the target. Overhead the location, the target was acquired and engaged by the two aircraft in rapid succession.
“Subsequent battle damage assessment revealed that the targeted structures went up in flames, killing its occupants.”
