The armed forces of Nigeria are sustaining their onslaught against terrorist elements in the North-East. In this regard, the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole on Saturday executed air strikes which neutralised several ISWAP and Boko Haram fighters at Kolloram,” the DMO Coordinator, Maj Gen , said.

“The operation was conducted based on credible intelligence reports indicating that some of the ISWAP leaders and fighters had converged on the settlement for a meeting. Accordingly, the Nigerian Air Force fighter jets and surveillance aircraft were scrambled to attack the location. Overhead the target area, the terrorists were seen moving towards the edges of the settlement and were engaged, leading to neutralisation of several of them.”
