A major terrorists’ fortress in Kurebe, in Shiroro council of Niger State, has been struck by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets, leading to the death of a well known Boko Haram Commander, Aminu Duniya, and many other terrorists.
The jets struck a meeting venue convened by the Boko Haram Commander during the weekend.
Military sources noted that Aminu had summoned the terrorists to Kurebe to plan for attacks.
“Over the weekend, NAF aircraft struck a terrorists’ gathering at Kurebe in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State after intelligence revealed that the terrorists had assembled for an important meeting hosted by Aminu Duniya, a Boko Haram terrorist commander.
“The air strike was successful and resulted in the death of many terrorists, though it remains unclear if Aminu Duniya was also neutralized in the strike.
“It should be noted that Kurebe is a known terrorists haven as the local inhabitants have since vacated the villages in and around the area after the terrorists drove them away in 2021,” a source said.
