NAF Jets Kill Wanted Boko Haram Commanders, Abu Ubaida, Yusuf Abba at Abandoned Warehouse In Shiroro, Niger State 

Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets conducted aggressive bombardments in Shiroro, Niger State, killing two wanted Boko Haram commanders, Abu Ubaida and Mallam Yusuf Abba.

Sources confirmed that they were neutralized together with about 40 of their footsoldiers at an abandoned warehouse in Kurebe, a popular community in Shiroro Local Government Area.

The NAF jets’ airstrikes that made Abu Ubaida and Abba meet their ‘gruesome end’ are attached to Operation Whirl Punch, raided their enclave.

“It would be recalled that on 22 December 2022, a NAF aircraft struck a terrorists’ gathering at Kurebe in Shiroro LGA. 

“Several Terrorists were killed, but it was unclear if any of the Terrorists’ Kingpins was killed eliminated in the air attacks.

“Consequently, after the said airstrike, preliminary investigations via exploitation of several sources revealed that there was underground in the warehouse where the terrorists run to hide whenever a NAF aircraft flies over the area. 

“It was also revealed that the terrorists hibernate within the location and bikes seen at different occasions carrying fertilizers to the warehouse. 

“These fertilizers are used by the terrorists to produce Improvised Explosive Device(s) (IEDs).  

“Accordingly, NAF fighter jets were dispatched with the mission of ensuring total destruction of the warehouse and annihilation of the terrorists,” said the intelligence operative.

Air Commodore Wap Maigida, the NAF Spokesperson, confirmed the successful airstrikes, noted that their Air Component will continue to sustain the offensive operations against the Boko Haram elements. 

The new NAF Spokesperson said that all NAF Operational Commanders, in keeping to the directive of the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, are making sure that terrorists and collaborators are denied any breathing space.
