The Nigerian Military says scores of Boko Haram insurgents have been killed following air raids at their hideouts in Maima and Tusuye settlements near Warshale and Tongule along the Dikwa-Rann axis of Borno State.
According to a statement on Saturday by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, the terrorists fell after Nigerian Air Force jets bombed their locations following credible intelligence and series of aerial surveillance missions.
He said the operation was carried out by the air task force team of Operation Hail Storm 2.
The statement read, “Crews of Operation Hail Storm 2 neutralized several Boko Haram Terrorists’ and destroyed their hideouts at Maima and Tusuye settlements near Warshale and Tongule along the Dikwa-Rann axis of Borno State during airstrikes executed on 1 October 2020.
“The ATF dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force fighter jets and helicopter gunships to engage the two locations. The attack aircraft scored devastating hits in the target areas, destroying some structures and neutralizing several of the terrorists.”
