The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), in continuation of its efforts at getting rid of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists, conducted several air strikes at different locations on the outskirts of Tumbin Gini and Tumbin Kayewa Northeastern Borno State on Friday 16 September 2016.

NAF spokesman, Group Captain, Ayodele Famuyiwa, in a statement on Sunday said the strikes were as a result of successive Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance reports obtained from several missions flown by NAF platforms.

In a video released by the NAF, some Boko Haram terrorists could be seen at one of the rendezvous where they were believed to be holding a high-level meeting when NAF jets were scrambled to hit the locations.


A post-strike damage assessment revealed that the rendezvous was badly damaged with many casualties while those far from the vicinity could be seen running helter skelter.

The aircrafts involved in the air strikes are the NAF F-7Ni and the Alpha jets.

The statement added that, “the air offensive of the NAF have continued to deny the terrorists any hiding place and room for maneuver.”

“This has enabled unhindered advance by the surface forces as part of the ongoing Operation GAMA AIKI.”


NAF had in an earlier operation successfully conducted air strikes on Boko Haram camps at Tumbin Rego on 26 August which led to the death of many high ranking members of the group.
