The Nigeria Air Force (NAF) yesterday said its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has neutralized several Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters at their hideout near Baga in Northern Borno State.

A statement from Airforce spokesperson Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said the attack was conducted on Saturday after a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform spotted the terrorists assembled under some trees around the Fish Dam near Baga.

He said, “The ATF, therefore, dispatched an Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the location. The aircraft multiple attacks pass, killing several of the terrorists and causing serious injuries to others. The surviving terrorists were mopped-up in subsequent follow-on strikes.”
