According to him, the troops dispatched appropriate force packages of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) attack aircraft to engage the locations.

The coordinator said: “The NAF jets scored devastating hits in their successive bomb and rocket runs, resulting in the destruction of the terrorists’ structures and neutralisation of several terrorists.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria will not relent until all enemies of the nation are neutralised and normalcy is restored to all troubled zones.”
