Lafiya Dole Destroys Terrorist Hideout In Borno

In further attempts to fight terrorism to a standstill, The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE had destroyed compounds housing Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists in Kaza, Ngala Local Government, Borno.

NAF Public Relations and information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja.

He said that the air strike was executed on Feb. 5 following intelligence reports that some ISWAP members who relocated from nearby Tongule have settled in the area.

According to him, the reports show that some ISWAP elements have set up camps in a cluster of compounds in Kaza, along with their logistics supplies.

“The identified location within the settlement was attacked by the ATF’s fighter jets after confirmatory Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, showed significant presence of terrorists.

“ This resulted in the destruction of the structures and the neutralisation of some of the ISWAP fighters,” he said.

Daramola said that NAF and surface forces will sustain air campaign to shape the battle space in the North East for the effective conduct of further ground and air operations.

it would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari earlier appealed to Nigerians, especially religious leaders, not to allow terrorists achieve their sole purpose of escalating religious disharmony in the country.

Buhari, observed that contrary to the narrative already being spread that the Boko Haram terror attacks are targeting Christians, about 90 percent of the terror group’s victims have been Muslims.

The President, who lamented the recent slaughtering of Rev Lawan Andimi, who was until his capture and killing by Boko Haram terrorists the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Adamawa State, noted that part of the plans of the terrorists is to set Nigerians against each other, along religious lines.

The President charged all Nigerians, across all religious beliefs, to learn from the selflessness.

President buhari however vowed that his administration would not relent its efforts to free the country of all elements of religious disharmony, adding that there is no part of the country that is free for such elements to hold sway.
