BARELY two weeks after the appointment of new Service Chiefs, troops have recaptured Dikwa town in Borno State from Boko Haram insurgents.
The recapturing was attributed to concerted efforts by the Nigerian Air Force and the Nigerian Army.
A statement last night by the military said: “A combination of the.....Nigerian Air Force Alpha Jet and surveillance aircraft jointly destroyed three ambush points heavily fortified with vehicle-mounted Anti-Aircraft Guns.
“This paved the way for the Nigerian Army to move in and recapture the town with less resistance. Cordon and search operations are currently on-going in the town by the Nigerian Army.
The Director Public Relations of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, confirmed the breakthrough by troops.
