NAF Alpha Jets Destroy Terrorists’ Hideouts in Monguno Axis
The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed a terrorists’ hideout and neutralized some terrorists at Kaicungul, a settlement about 100Km Northwest of Monguno, in Northern Borno State.
The operation was conducted on Friday 25 January 2019, on the heels of credible intelligence indicating that the village was being used as a staging area from where the terrorists assemble to launch attacks against own troops’ locations.
The ATF therefore detailed an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform for confirmatory surveillance of the location, which observed significant terrorists’ activities in the settlement.
Accordingly, 2 Alpha Jet aircraft were scrambled to attack the hideout. The 2 aircraft took turns in attacking the location, recording successful hits on the target leading to the destruction of some of the structures as well as the neutralization some terrorists.
