In the Northeast, and after days of intelligence gathering, a ‘spy operative’ of the Nigerian military, told PRNigeria that they discovered that terrorists’ activities in the Tumbuns near Bukar Meram and Kollaram had heightened.

According to the operative, insurgents had converted the location into an important rendezvous point for ISWAP fighters.

He said: “Further intelligence revealed that large stockpile of weapons was concealed in the 2 locations in anticipation of terrorists’ offensive operations.

“Subsequently, NAF aircraft were authorized to attack the locations. In coordination with other platforms, bombs and rockets were simultaneously dropped on the targets, while surviving and fleeing terrorists were mobbed up.”
