The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has killed several militants of the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) with airstrikes from two of the newly acquired A-29 Super Tucano Jets in Borno State.
It was gathered that the NAF component of Operation Hadin Kai launched a series of attacks on Monday at the terrorists’ hideout in Dooma village, Kaga Local Government Area.
The operation was conducted around noon after Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, revealed the location of the ISWAP members.
The ground assessment from the spots of the air interdiction indicated that scores of the terrorists were killed in the process.
Since the death of JAS leader, Abubakar Shekau, ISWAP has been consolidating its grip in locations around Lake Chad.
In 2021, it appointed Wali Sani Shuwaram, a 45-year-old as the new Leader (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.
The sect’s membership has swollen with the defection of hundreds of Boko Haram fighters under Shekau.
The terror group has caused over 100,000 deaths and displaced millions of individuals mainly in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.
