The Nigerian air force says its air task force (ATF) of operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram camp in Ngwuri Gana, Borno.

Ibikunle Daramola, director of public relations and information of NAF, said this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja. He said the operation was carried out on Monday.

Daramola said insurgents were also neutralised in the operation, which was carried out based on intelligence reports.

He said the reports indicated that the settlement was one of the locations from where the terrorists launched attacks against troops’ positions and villages around Kumshe.

He said intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions later confirmed the presence of a large number of insurgents in the settlement.

“Accordingly, the ATF launched a coordinated attack on various targets within the settlement employing Alpha Jet and F-7Ni aircraft as well as Mi-35 attack helicopters leading to the destruction of BHT Communication Centre,” he said.
