​The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), disclosed Sunday that in continuation of its efforts at finishing the remnants of the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT), its fighter jets conducted several air strikes at suspected BHT locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa Northeastern Borno State on Friday 16 September 2016.

A statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Public Relations said, “The air strikes were as a result of ground based intelligence and successive Intelligence Surveillance

Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by NAF platforms.

“In a video released by the NAF, some of the terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when NAF jets were scrambled to hit the locations.

“A post-strike battle damage assessment of the the strikes revealed that the rendezvous was badly damaged with many casualties while those far from the vicinity could be seen scrambling to safety.

“The aircraft involved in the air strikes are the NAF F-7Ni and the Alpha jets. The air offensive of the NAF has continued to deny the terrorists any hiding place and room for maneuver.

“This has enabled unhindered advance by the surface forces as part of the ongoing Operation GAMA AIKI.
