"The feat was achieved yesterday, 25 September 2019, when Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft, detailed by the ATF, destroyed a major Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) Logistics Base and Training Camp at Kusuma on the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.

“The air strike was executed after credible intelligence reports had established that a section of the settlement was serving as a training camp for the terrorists, while some buildings within the camp were being used to store their fuel, arms and ammunition as well as other logistics supplies.

“The pre-attack surveillance showed scores of fighters attempting to flee the location upon hearing the sound of the attack aircraft. 

"They were engaged by the attack aircraft in successive passes, neutralizing many of them. 

"The terrorists’ logistics supply store, which was also hit, was seen engulfed in flames due to the raid.
