He added that some terrorists are currently trapped inside Minok town for fear of air strikes.

According to the source, the NAF jets which could not rain missiles on the insurgents, have been hovering in the air for hours to avoid collateral damage.

It was gathered that some ISWAP fighters, on sighting the military jets, fled to Minok primary school to escape air troops’ strikes and burnt a police station out of anger.
