NAF said the insurgents were obliterated as they assembled for a meeting at same area.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Daramola said the operation was conducted through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole on Saturday.

“The operation was executed on Dec. 14, following credible intelligence reports indicating that some of the ISWAP leaders had assembled for a meeting in one of two buildings at the centre of the settlement.

“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets dispatched by the ATF to attack the location scored accurate hits on the target building completely obliterating it and killing its terrorists’ occupants,” he said.
