The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), has stated that its Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed an Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) logistics base near Arege in the northern part of Borno State on Saturday, January 2nd.

The Nigerian Airforce Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola statement read:

“This was accomplished in an air strike conducted on Feb. 2, after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed the presence of some vehicles and equipment, well camouflaged under dense vegetation in the area.

“Accordingly, the ATF scrambled a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the location, supported by an ISR aircraft which conducted the Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) for the mission.

“The BDA revealed that the Alpha Jet’s bomb strikes scored direct hits on the target location, totally destroying the vehicles and other logistics items, thereby further degrading the terrorists’ capabilities,”
