The Nigerian Air Force says it has conducted an air strike on a “well-known terrorists’ enclave” being used as a logistics storage area in Borno State.

The Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, in a statement on Sunday, said the onslaught by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai led to the killing of several terrorists while at least four gun trucks belonging to them went up in flames after being bombed.

He said the operations were conducted on November 8 and 11 in a bid to deny terrorists freedom to perpetrate crime.

Gabkwet said, “Two major air strikes on November 8 and November 11, 2023, undertaken by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai have led to the decimation of several terrorists taking cover at Ajigin and Banki Junction areas located in Borno State.

“Air interdiction missions were also conducted at a location 7km East of Banki Junction on 11 November 2023. The location was a well-known terrorists’ enclave hitherto deserted but suddenly active with high terrorists’ activities and used as a logistics storage area and staging area to attack troops’ locations at Bank Junction.

“The need to attack the location thus became necessary. Accordingly, NAF aircraft were scrambled to interdict the location. The aftermath of the strike revealed the destruction of the location with the logistics sites on fire” the statement added.
