Officers of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) at the weekend killed many terrorists during airstrikes in Niger and Kaduna States.
NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Edward GABKWET, disclosed this to reporters in Abuja on Sunday.
He said NAF aircraft struck terrorists gathering at Kurebe in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State following intelligence that they had assembled for an important meeting hosted by Aminu Duniya, a Boko Haram terrorist commander.
The spokesman added that Duniya invited the terrorists to his enclave at Kurebe to the meeting that attracted numerous terrorists who came in large numbers on their motorbikes.
According to him, the air strike was successful and resulted in the death of many terrorists, though it remains unclear if the said host- Aminu Duniya, was among those killed in the strike.
