The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), on Thursday said it carried out an Air operation on the 29th August 2016, and successfully attacked a Boko Haram camp at Tumbun Rego in Northern, Borno State.

 A statement from Air Force spokesman, Group Captain, Ayodele Famuyiwa said the location is where some wounded commanders of the sect were believed to be receiving treatment.

 Famuyiwa said “Intelligence report has it that some Boko Haram commanders, who survived the air assault on the night of 20th August 2016, leading to the death of over 300 insurgents, had sustained serious injuries and were said to have relocated  to the Camp at Tumbun Rego for medical treatment.”

 He added that: “the latest strike followed the trail of this piece of intelligence to neutralize these suspected leaders of the sect who are high value targets.”

 He also said while the NAF is yet to ascertain the casualty figure, the post-strike Battle Damage Assessment mission shows that the degree of damage achieved was devastating.
