Watch Nigerian Air Force Jet Bombard Boko Haram Commanders’ Hideout

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) said on Thursday that one of its fighter jets had carried out an attack on a location where some injured top leaders of Boko Haram were hiding inside northern Borno.

The Boko Haram leaders were believed to be part of those that survived the August 20 air raid that led to the death of well over 300 insurgents according to the military records.

Spokesman for the NAF, Ayodele Famuyiwa, a Group Captain, who made this public in a statement, said the air raid was effected following intelligence that revealed that some of the Boko Haram commanders had fled to take refuge at secret camp called Tumbun Rego where they were to get medical care.

NAF had also released a link to the video footage showing how the camp was being bombarded.
