Modu Sullum, Notorious ISWAP Commander, Killed Along With Others, In NAF Aircraft Offensive In Borno

A notorious ISWAP Logistic Commander, Modu Sullum has been reportedly killed, along with many other commanders and terrorists in air bombardments by the fighter jet of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).

Information reaching us indicated that the multiple airstrikes were carried out at Lamboa in Kaga local government area of Borno state today, June 20. The operations were conducted by a mix of aircraft, including Alpha-Jets, L-39 and MI-35 helicopters.

It was gathered that Modu Sulum was responsible for the destructions of power transmission towers at Malanari along Maiduguri-Damaturu Highway as well as attacks on travellers in Auno and Jakana axis.

The insurgents, in a convoy of eight -gun trucks, were said to have invaded Lamboa, preparatory to launching a gruesome attack in Mainok axis in the State, but that they were swiftly engaged by ground and air troops, foiling their missions after the NAF reconnaissance platform had earlier hovered over the location before the airstrikes.

It was gathered that over a dozen ISWAP-Boko Haram fighters were killed by bombardments of the military fighter aircraft.

When contacted, Airforce Spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet confirmed the success of the military airstrikes.

“Yes, it was a very successful operation. Of the eight terrorist gun trucks sighted by our surveillance team, the aircraft successfully took out six of the trucks including an unconfirmed number of terrorists that were eliminated.

“Currently the ground troops of the Nigerian Army and our air elements are mopping up the area and assessing the situation.

“As we have said before, there is no hiding place for these terrorists especially with the renewed vigour, synergy and jointness being exhibited by all members of the Armed forces in the North-East theatre of Operation.”
