NAF says Shekau's wife feared dead after airstrikes on Durwawa”

Army spokesperson for the 3 Division of the Nigerian Army in Jos, Colonel Kayode Ogunsanya, confirmed the attack but declined to give any details of the casualties.

A ranked officer, who pleaded anonymity, told PREMIUM TIMES that one of the slain soldiers was an officer and that a civilian was among those killed when the insurgents attacked on Tuesday.

At least eight soldiers were reportedly killed in a Yobe State village after suspected Boko Haram gunmen launched an attack on a military base, sources said.

The source said, "The attackers took the soldiers unawares at a football pitch and open fire on them".

Operation RUWAN WUTA II, is the new military operation aimed at further eliminating the terrorists in the country.

Sasawa is a rural community located in the northern part of Damaturu and has remained without the services of the mobile communication networks vandalised by the insurgents for over five years.

Since the establishment of military base in Sassawa, which is 37 kilometres away from Damaturu, this will be the fourth attack on the town and military formation in the area.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, in a statement, said the operation was carried out after a series of surveillance and intelligence reports.

The Nigerian Air Force says it has killed the wife of Abubakar Shekau the factional leader of terrorist sect Boko Haram.

According to Adesanya, Fitdasi was reported to have been representing her husband in a coordinating meeting with other insurgents at the location of the airstrikes.

"It might be recalled that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) had reported the successful aerial attack of a large number of BHTs at Durwawa on 19 October 2017".
