The Air Task Force, ATF, of Operation Lafiya Dole, in continuation of airstrikes being conducted under subsidiary Operation Hail Storm, has neutralized some ISWAP Commanders at Bukar Meram on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.

According to a statement posted via the Defence Headquarters’ Twitter handle on Wednesday, several terrorists, as well as logistics facilities were also neutralized at Dole, a settlement in the Southern part of the state.

The statement noted that the air interdiction missions were executed on August 17, on the heels of credible intelligence reports indicating a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the 2 settlements.

“Bukar Meram, a major ISWAP logistics hub linking other Island settlements of Lake Chad, houses several of their fighters and some of their key leaders.

“The hub was attacked by an enhanced force package of NAF fighter jets and helicopter gunships which hit designated targets in the area.

“This led to the destruction of the logistics facilities and neutralization of several of the terrorists and their leaders.

“The attack at Dole was carried out after ISR missions showed a buildup of activities in the area after the relocation of some terrorists from nearby settlements of Kokiwa and Yale.

“Overhead the area the ISR aircraft spotted no fewer than 20 terrorists in the area, which were taken out by the NAF attack aircraft,” the statement read.
