The Nigerian Airforce says it has conducted Air Strikes near Arina Woje situated in the Southern Tumbuns near Lake Chad, which is being used as a hideout by terrorists in Borno resulting in the elimination of many terrorists while their cohorts sustained several injuries.

In a statement by director of NAF Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, air strikes were also conducted by NAF aircraft against militants and oil thieves to protect residents from planned terror.

Gabkwet said the area was last attacked on 13 June 2023, with resounding success but it was noted that some terrorists, feeling the heat from other areas, were returning to the location to hide.

He further stated that operations in the area will continue in liaison with other security and government agencies until the activities of these criminals are reduced to the barest minimum.
