The Nigerian Air Force has destroyed a major Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) Logistics Base and Training Camp at Kusuma on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno.
NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.
According to the statement, the operation was executed by the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE after credible intelligence reports established that a section of the settlement was serving as a training camp for the terrorists.
The pre-attack surveillance showed scores of fighters attempting to flee the location upon hearing the sound of the attack aircraft.
It also states that the insurgents were engaged by the attack aircraft in successive passes, neutralising many of them.
