The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) said it’s Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed a building being used as meeting venue by Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters near Baga in Northern Borno State.

The Director of Public Relations and Information, Ibikunle Daramola said in a statement on Wednesday.

He explained that the attack was conducted yesterday, 1 January 2019, after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions confirmed that the building was being used as an assembly point by the terrorists.

Daramola said the ATF consequently dispatched a NAF Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the building.

“A direct hit was recorded on the target leading to significant damage to the structure and neutralization of the occupants.” Daramola said.
