The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) said on Saturday that it had killed more than 70 Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) members in the Lake Chad area, at the border with Niger Republic in an airstrikes attack.

A statement issued by Nigerian Air Force Spokesman, Edward Gabkwe said that aircraft from both Nigeria and Niger had taken part in the operation.

The Lake Chad area where Nigeria said it launched the airstrikes had been known for hosting fighters of the Islamic State West Africa Province, a jihadist group active since 2016.

“Missions over the suspected locations conducted on April 13, 2022, specifically sighted large number of terrorists, a likely logistics camp,” the statement said.

As a result, they carried out airstrikes on April 14 at Tumbun Rego and a nearby training camp, using aircraft from both Nigeria and Niger, he added in a statement.

“Over 70 ISWAP terrorists were either eliminated or severely injured,” he said.

Nigeria often scaled up its offensive at this time of the year, before the rainy season started.

Soldiers had been battling the jihadist insurgency for more than 12 years.

Since last year, ISWAP had mostly taken over from its rival Boko Haram, after its leader, Abubakar Shekau, died during inter-factional clashes.

Shekau had gained international notoriety after kidnapping nearly 300 schoolgirls in Chibok in 2014.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
