On Saturday, the Nigerian Airforce (NAF) reported it had neutralized several bandits who had gathered on an island in the Tumbuns on Lake Chad and at Malam Fatori for a meeting.

On Saturday morning, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, Director of Public Relations and Information for the Nigerian Air Force, made the announcement.

On the 20th of October 2021, NAF obtained credible intelligence that roughly 20 boats carrying suspected Boko Haram/ISWAP militants would converge on the aforesaid areas, he stated.

According to him, NAF aircraft were scrambled under Operation Hadin Kai to carry out strikes on the targets after receiving valid intelligence.

“Reaching overhead the targets, the pilots observed a gathering of about 20 boats consisting of 5-7 suspected terrorists in each boat,” he said.

The NAF spokesman added that using a mixture of bombs and rockets, “the 3 aircraft carried out a series of strikes and scored devastating hits on the targets leaving some survivors scrambling for their lives.”

He said “the operations by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai yet again confirmed the high concentration of terrorists and insurgent elements hibernating in the Lake Chad general area,” adding that “working alongside the Army and Naval components, as well as other security agencies under Operation HADIN KAI, the Air Component will continue to sustain its operation until the area is rid of all terrorists and insurgents.”
