NAF Airstrike Kills Boko Haram Terrorists at Kote Kura, Bulama Isamari, Borno State

The Armed Forces of Nigeria on Sunday morning said Nigeria Air Force (NAF) airstrike killed more Boko Haram terrorists in their hideouts in Kote Kura, Bulama Isamari, Borno State.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that “in continuation of the series of Air Interdiction missions being conducted to rid the North East of the Country of terrorist elements, the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has taken out more Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) hideouts and eliminated several of their fighters at 2 locations – Kote Kura and Bulama Isamari – both in Borno State.

“The air strikes were executed yesterday, 2 January 2021, employing appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships based on credible intelligence reports indicating that the BHTs had recently established camps at the 2 settlements, where they store their logistics items as well as plan and launch attacks. 

“Overhead Kote Kura, a settlement in Bama area, the NAF attack aircraft engaged scores of terrorists observed in the target area, leading to the neutralization of several of them as well as the destruction of structures and logistics stores, some of which were seen engulfed in flames.

“In the same vein, at Bulama Isamari, within the Timbuktu Traingle, the NAF aircraft took turns in engaging the target, scoring accurate hits which equally resulted in the neutralisation of several terrorists.”
