The Nigerian Air Force says it sighted two flags hoisted by the Boko Haram terrorists on some buildings in the Zanari area of Borno State, which borders the Lake Chad. NAF added that its fighter aircraft thereafter struck the buildings and killed an undisclosed number of the insurgents, who held meetings at the location.
The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, on Monday said the Boko Haram flags were sighted on Thursday, September seventh, noting that the air strike was part of the Operation Ruwan Wuta launched by the military.
Adesanya said that the objective of the operation was to further degrade the terrorists from regrouping to cause havoc.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army said its troops had killed some Boko Haram terrorists in an ambush and recovered some weapons.
