Borno: Military Airstrikes Dislodge Remnant of Terrorists at Suwa, Stronghold of Boko Haram Terrorists in Gezuwa

In furtherance to the directive of the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Hasan Abubakar, to stop at nothing in going after terrorists and ensure they are brought to justices as the era of treating them with kids’ gloves is long over, the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai has dislodge the remnant of terrorists in the Northeast.

Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet in a press statement revealed that an early morning air strike was conducted by the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai at Suwa in Kala Balge Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno State on 11 September 2023 to clear the Region of the remaining terrorists, insurgents and other criminals.

Air Commodore Gabkwet noted that it may be recalled that Suwa was a stronghold of Boko Haram Terrorists in Gezuwa general area near Sambisa Forest until its dislodgement by the military and other security agencies.

He said recent intelligence, however, revealed the massing up of terrorists within the area with likely plans to attack troops on patrol along major routes to Bama and Mafa LGA. 

"Further intelligence also revealed that the same group of terrorists had perfected plans to attack troops stationed around Rann in Kalabalge LGA. 

"Accordingly, air strikes were authorized with confirmatory assessments revealing several terrorists neutralised and structures destroyed thereby degrading their ability to attack friendly forces and innocent law abiding civilians." he added.

It has now become evident that the efforts of the entire security agencies operating in the Northeast has, to a large extend, yielded the requisite outcome, though a lot still needs to be done. 

The need for the Air Component Commanders in all joint operating theatres, to sustain the momentum is thus expedient, just all the support of all Nigerians to the Armed Forces and other security agencies is essential as they clear the Region of all criminal elements.
