Nigerian Airforce jets have launched an aerial attack on a settlement along the Yale-Kumshe axis in Borno state.
Intelligence reports established that the location served as a staging area from where the terrorists launch attacks on other parts of the state.

A statement from Major General John Enenche, Coordinator Defence Media Operations Defence Headquarters on Saturday said, the NAF attack aircraft engaged the location in multiple bomb and rocket runs, destroying several of their structures and neutralizing scores of terrorists.

The statement also said, the strike on Tongule was undertaken after surveillance missions revealed continued assembly of the terrorists within the settlement at nighttime.

Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) helicopter gunships for a night attack on the location, with their barrage of rockets neutralizing several of the terrorists.

“The latest of these include the massive destruction of Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) Camps and neutralization of scores of their fighters in a night attack at Tongule on 24 September and daytime raids at Bone and Isari B Musa on 25 September 2020.

” At Isari B Musa several terrorists, who were observed both within and in bushes surrounding the settlement, were taken out as the NAF attack aircraft took turns in engaging the target area.” The statement said.
