The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) conducted air strikes under Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) which successfully destroyed many terrorists and their hideouts in the Tumbuns near Lake Chad.

A statement from the NAF mentioned that these strikes took place on March 24 at a location Northwest of Arina Woje in the Tumbuns.

The decision to carry out these strikes was based on intelligence that identified terrorist hideouts in that area.

“Intelligence had also confirmed an activation of terrorists’ activities around clusters of structures concealed under trees near the location,” the statement signed by NAF spokesman, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet revealed.

“The need to attack the location thus became imperative.

“After the strikes, a post-strike Battle Damage Assessment revealed several terrorists were neutralized and their hideouts set ablaze, thereby degrading their capabilities to attack surface forces.

“These strikes have also degraded the capabilities of terrorist elements operating in the region to attack innocent civilians residing near Arina Woje in Borno State,” the statement added.
