The Nigeria military at the weekend bombarded the camp of Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) leader, Fiya Ba Yuram.


Scores of terrorists were killed in the raid conducted in Sambisa Forest by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets.


The operation followed intelligence gathered by the Air Component of Operation of Hadin Kai, which revealed the terrorists were preparing for an attack.


The military said the strikes were successful, though yet to confirm if Yuram was among the insurgents eliminated.


A number of areas in the Tunbuns near Lake Chad were also shelled after terrorists’ activities were observed.


One of the locations struck was a camp suspectedly used for the training of ISWAP fighters.


“Pandemonium broke out as the remnant of surviving terrorists took cover under nearby trees which were later struck by the aircraft,” an officer told PRNigeria.


NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet confirmed the offensive.


Gabkwet said the strikes hit specific targets in the Tunbuns and Sambisa “with varying degrees of successes recorded”.


“The NAF won’t, however, be drawn into the details of those neutralized”, the spokesman added.
