FastNews reports that numerous Boko Haram militants were killed in airstrikes by two Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets on Saturday in the northcentral region of Niger State, including the renowned terrorist group’s Commander Aminu Duniya.
While gathering at Kurebe in the Shiroro Local Government Area (LGA) for a crucial meeting hosted by Duniya, the terrorists were neutralized.
The wanted terrorist Commander was reportedly invited his fellow criminals to his enclave at Kurebe, to the meeting which apparently attracted numerous terrorists. They came in large numbers on their motorbikes.
Boko Haram, also known as officially known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, is responsible for numerous attacks in the northern and northeastern regions of Nigeria, as well as in the Lake Chad Basin in Cameroon, Chad and Niger Republic that have killed thousands of people since 2009.
More than 2.3 million people have been displaced by the Boko Haram conflict since May 2013.
