The Nigerian Air Force said its fighter jets struck Boko Haram new hideout about one nautical mile south of Tumbum Rego in northern Borno.
A statement by Air Force spokesman Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa stated the fighter jets and helicopter gunship hit the location in a coordinated day and night operation following Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR).
He noted that the intelligence report showed that Boko Haram insurgents who attacked Surface Forces at Kangarwa on January the 12th 2017 took shelter at the said location.
Famuyiwa said the renewed effort is aimed at denying the remnants of the insurgents the opportunity to regroup and launch attack the ground troops or people within the host communities.
