WATCH VIDEO: How air force ‘wasted’ Arepo militants


The Nigerian air force has released the footage of what it says is a recent raid on the base of militants in the Arepo area of Ogun state.

The video showed two aircraft hovering over a militant camp, which had at least 15 armed men. About five boats were seen beside some makeshift tents in the camp.

In a manner as though they were preparing for battle, one of the militants mounted a gunboat, while others joined him later.

The air force jets initially seen were apparently on a surveillance mission, as three fighter jets were later deployed to the location.

The footage indicated that the jets released missiles into the creeks, but images of the attack strikes themselves were not shown.

Jerry cans and boats used for siphoning crude oil were seen in the video, dated August 1.

Prior to the operation, which was code-named ‘Operation Awatse’, the militants wreaked havoc on different coastal communities in Lagos and Ogun states.

They killed, robbed, raped, and kidnapped residents of the communities with little or no resistance from security agencies.

The military crackdown is also taking place in Ikorodu, Lagos.
