Daramola said the intensive air strikes were  conducted under the auspices of Operation GREEN SWEEP III. He said Operation GREEN SWEEP III is aimed at some identified terrorists’ positions in Borno.

Daramola explained that the location was designated for attack after series of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions had established that the location was being used as a staging area from where the BHT elements launch their attacks.

Daramola said the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the North-East.
