The Nigerian Military has eliminated a top commander of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP), Mallam Ari at Kirta Wulgo in Borno State. The ISWAP commander and others with him were eliminated by bomb airstrikes from the Super Tucano jets of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) deployed under Operation Hadin Kai. A senior military officer quoted by PR Nigeria revealed that the airstrikes killed up to forty terrorists who were gathered along the fringes of Northeast Kirta Wulgo. The source said Ari until his death was in charge of Kirta Wulgo but was taken out by the airstrike along with foreign mercenaries fabricating Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) for the terrorists. The military intelligence officer said: “Some were also seen with weapons around a nearby make-shift structure, which was a likely indication that the structure might have had a high calibre terrorist target. “After the airstrikes, some of the surviving terrorists were observed making frantic efforts to put out the fire that ensued while others took to their heels. “Indeed, the make-shift structures were significantly burnt and destroyed at the fringes.” “Several ISWAP fighters were neutralized in the airstrikes including one Mallam Ari who was identified as the Fiya of Kirta Wulgo.” Fiya is a title held by the second in the hierarchy of the terrorists’ military structure. NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet also confirmed the airstrike at Kirta Wulgo but remained silent on the number as well as identities of those killed.
