- Insurgents Commanders receive treatment
In an unexpected attack on Boko Haram position, the The Nigerian Air Force
(NAF), has successfully destroyed a Boko Haram terrorist camp at Tumbun
Rego in Northern Borno.
Several Boko Haram Commanders who were wounded in a similar attack on the
night of August 20, 2016, over 300, were believed to have been receiving treatment at the camp when the attack occurred.
According to Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, NAF Director of Public
Information, intelligence report has indicated that the Commanders had
relocated to the new camp at Tumbun Rego for medical treatment following
Famuyiwa said the latest strike followed the trail of the intelligence, with the aim of neutralizing the suspected leaders of the sect who are high value targets.
He said the NAF is yet to ascertain the casualty figure, but post-strike Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) mission shows that the degree of damage achieved was devastating as the buildings were engulfed by large fire as can be seen from the declassified video of the air operation.
