Air strikes by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) air crafts have reportedly killed three terrorist kingpins and 30 of their musketeers in Borno State.

The terrorist kingpins, Mallam Ari, Ali Dawud, and Bakurah Fallujah, along with their foot soldiers, were killed on April 13 at the hideouts of Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) within Kolleram village along the shores of Lake Chad, according to Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, NAF’s spokesperson, in a statement on Tuesday, April 16.

Gabkwet noted that the air strikes also destroyed many terrorists’ vehicles, motorcycles, and logistical assets.

“Intelligence gathered after the air strike further indicated that the aerial bombardment effectively obliterated a key facility within the Kolleram enclave, which served as a hub for the terrorists’ food processing activities, including grinding machines,” he said.

The spokesperson said that with the destruction of the terrorists’ logistics, the strikes had severely impeded their operational capabilities.
