NAF DESTROYS TERRORISTS’ VEHICLE, LOGISTICS INFRASTRUCTURE AT TUMBUN SALE, TUMBUN ALLURA IN BORNO STATE

1.    The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists’ vehicle and some logistics infrastructure at Tumbun Sale and Tumbun  Allura on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State. The operation was conducted on 8 March 2019 on the heels of intelligence reports indicating the presence of ISWAP fighters along with some  vehicles and logistics support items well camouflaged under the dense vegetation within the settlements. Accordingly, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet, supported by an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, was dispatched to attack the terrorists’ hideouts in successive strikes resulting in damage to several structures as well as the destruction of one of the terrorists’ vehicles, which was seen engulfed in flames.
 
2.    The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.
