Nigerian Air Force Bombard New Boko Haram Hideout

The Nigerian Air Force said its fighter jets struck a new Boko Haram hideout about one nautical mile south of Tumbum Rego in northern Borno.

The Air Force Spokesman Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa in a statement on Monday night said NAF fighter jets and helicopter gunship assaulted the location in a coordinated day and night operation following Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance(ISR).

The Nigerian army had said  on Sunday that Boko Haram commander, Abubakar Shekau and other insurgent, fled Sambisa forest, as they could not withstand the superior firepower of the Nigerian Army.

While speaking on Monday night, Ayodele noted that the intelligence report showed that Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau with his field commanders suffered brutal attack.

He recalled that the NAF of recent has intensified aerial patrol over the entire operation in the North East, as well as offensive mission around the Green Belt region near Niger and Chad Republics.

Famuyiwa said the renewed effort is aimed at denying the remnants of the insurgents the opportunity to regroup and launch attack on own surface forces or people within the host communities.
