NAF Destroy Terrorists’ Logistics Storage In Niger

The Air Component of Operation Whirl Punch has destroyed wanted terrorists’ logistics storage situated in Palele in Niger State.

NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet who disclosed this said the air strikes executed on 15 March 2024 were authorised after intelligence revealed the presence of terrorists’ weapons cache East of Palele, in Niger State.

AVM Gabkwet said the operation, which was executed with speed and precision, led to significant damage to the target area, including a secondary explosion confirming the destruction of arms and ammunition.

“The weapons are believed to be affiliated to a particular terrorist’s kingpin who is on the Most Wanted Lists of terrorists. These strikes have no doubt degraded the capabilities of terrorist elements operating in the region to attack innocent civilians, especially in Kaduna and Niger States,” he said.

The Airforce spokesperson assured that NAF, along with other surface forces, will continue to maintain dominance over areas of concern through enhanced situational awareness, continuous patrols, and targeted interdiction of terrorists’ safe havens.

He further called for support and information from the general public on the activities of terrorists and other criminal elements.
