NIGERIA: NAF Aircraft Strikes Terrorists At Kurebe In Niger State… Neutralizes Many Terrorists

Towards ridding Nigeria of terrorism, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft at the weekend struck a terrorists gathering at Kurebe in Shiroro Local Government Area (LGA) of Niger State.

The action had followed intelligence received that the terrorists had assembled for an important meeting hosted by Aminu Duniya, a Boko Haram terrorist commander.

Security Watch Africa (SWA) gathered from sources that the air strike was successful and resulted in the death of many terrorists.

Although, it was unclear if Aminu Duniya was also neutralized in the strike.

Aminu Duniya was said to have “invited the terrorists to his enclave at Kurebe to the meeting which obviously attracted numerous terrorists who came in large numbers on their motorbikes.”

Kurebe is a known terrorists haven as the local inhabitants of Kurebe have since vacated the villages in and around the area after the terrorists drove them away in 2021.

One of the sources said “The strike at Kurebe came barely hours after a coordinated joint air and ground operations, neutralized several terrorists operating around Damba – Galbi axis in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

“The activities of the terrorists continued to make life unbearable to locals in the area. So, when intelligence had revealed that the terrorists planned on overuning a nearby village within the vicinity, the military saw that as an opportunity to surprise them.”

While Nigerian Army troops laid siege around the location, another source said NAF aircraft were directed to the suspected location of the terrorists which was then attacked.

“Several terrorists were confirmed killed after the strike,” the source stated.
