The Nigerian Air Force on Monday said it carried out an airstrike and killed several Boko Haram leaders in the restive northeast state of Borno.

Fighter jets obliterated a compound in a settlement where Boko Haram leaders assembled for a meeting on Saturday, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) spokesman Ibikunle Daramola said in a statement.

The air operation also destroyed surrounding structures and “neutralized” their Boko Haram occupants, the spokesperson said without specifying the number of Boko Haram fighters killed or injured.

Daramola did not identify the Boko Haram leaders killed in the airstrike. Enditem
