In continuation of its sustained air strikes against remnants of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) elements on the fringes of Lake Chad, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has severely degraded a terrorists’ hideout at Abaganaram in Northern Borno State. The attack, which took place on 31 May 2019, was executed following the discovery of the active terrorists’ settlement by a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform on a routine mission.

Accordingly, the ATF scrambled 2 Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the location, scoring accurate hits on 3 target compounds, which resulted in the destruction of the structures as well as the neutralization of some of their fighters.

The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain the effort to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast.
