“The assault was directed after tenable knowledge reports showing that the psychological oppressors, who had fled the arrangement of air strikes led by Nigerian, Nigerien and Chadian Air Forces, around the Malkani-Tumbun Rego general pivot of northern Borno State, had joined in Tumbun Hamma,” he said.

He clarified that the assault was gone before by arrangement of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, which affirmed overwhelming nearness of fear-based oppressors in a few structures, alongside their coordinations things, spread over the little settlement, NAN reports.

“In like manner, the ATF mixed an Alpha Jet flying machine to assault the area, recording a fruitful direct hit in the focal point of the objective zone prompting the balance of a few fear mongers just as the obliteration of their structures and coordination,” he said.

Daramola said the NAF, working together with surface powers, would continue its activities to debase the psychological militants in the North-East.
