This disclosure was made by the Air Force spokesman, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa.

According to him, the strike was ordered after an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) tip-off that remnants of the fleeing terrorists were gathered at the location.

Famuyiwa said that intelligence report by sister surface forces indicated that remnants of fleeing insurgents were gathered at the location, about 10 kms Southwest of Gwoza in northern Borno state.

“This report was confirmed by NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft before combat platforms were called in to strike the location.

“Follow-up battle damage assessment confirmed that the air attack was successful as shown by the enclosed declassified footage of the operation,” he said.

NAF had in the past few weeks been bombarding remnants of the insurgents’ locations and hideouts in the North-East, especially in northern part of Borno State.
