September 19, 2016 – Nigerian Air Force Fighter Jets Bomb Boko Haram Camps In Borno State, Heavy Causalities Recorded

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Sunday said its fighter jets have destroyed another Boko Haram’s camp and killed several of the terrorists on the outskirts of Borno state.

It said the latest air strike conducted last Friday, hit some suspected terrorists’ locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa in the state.

NAF, director in charge public relations and information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, who made this known in Abuja, said the air strikes were as a result of ground based intelligence and successive Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by its platforms.

He said a video released by the surveillance team revealed that some of the terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when the jets hit the locations.

Famuyiwa, in a statement made available to Daily Sun, said the air offensive has continued to deny the terrorists a safe haven for maneuvering and carrying out their attacks. He added that the air strike has enabled unhindered advance by the surface forces as part of the ongoing Operation GAMA AIKI.

He also said the NAF had, in an earlier operation, successfully conducted air strikes on BHT Camps at Tumbin Rego on 26 August which led to the death of many high ranking members of the group.

The Nigerian army said its soldiers on counter insurgency operations in the north east, yesterday, rescued 43 persons abducted by members of the Boko Haram terrorists group in Borno state .

The soldiers were also said to have recovered a total of 500 cattle stolen by the terrorists.
Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman said the terrorists numbering eight, had abducted some cattle rearers and livestock at gunpoint at Dalakalari, in Mafa Local Government Area of the state.

Usman said some people in the area had called to inform the military about the incident who immediately swung into action and pursued the terrorists.

He said: “The terrorists sensing danger abandoned the livestock just before Panamri village and ran away.
“The troops were able to rescue 43 persons and 500 cows taken by the terrorists”.

  1. The funny thing here with this Boko Haram and our Military is the pictures they will be showing us are those who still look like beggars…

    To kill a snake,the head must be cut off….the real BOKOHARAMERS ARE THERE IN ASO ROCK surrounding our President.

  2. It is more likely that cows are more valued than human lives, the rate in which the government tackles the cattle rustling issues cannot be compared to the mute being maintained over the incessant attacks by the terrorist Fulani herdsmen in the Benue and Enugu states. May the Almighty God protects His people.

  3. There is one area which this present administration deserves commendation, that is, fighting against Boko Haram sect. President Buhari has really shown that he is committed to safe lives and properties of his people. This president has proven that he can wipe out Boko Haram Sect in Nigeria. I know some anti Buhari will criticize me that, why can’t he do the same on economy? Simple answer, solving economy problem is more complex than getting rid of BH. Here, we are talking about repairing economy damage of more than 50 years.

    My believe is, our president is currently working on this and I’m positive we all going to smile in the end. Bad beginning always makes good ending. Buhari as a single individual cannot solve the complex economy which like math problem requiring many steps to solve. It is not possible to elect someone today and expect such person to proffer solution to our economy which has been impaired by corruption.
