Nigeria's Air Force said it had killed some senior Boko Haram militants and possibly fatally wounded their overall leader in a raid on the Islamists' northeast heartland.

Government planes attacked the fighters in the village of Taye inside the Sambisa forest in Borno State on Friday night, the air force said, adding it had only just confirmed details of the raid.



"Their leader, so called 'Abubakar Shekau', is believed to be fatally wounded on his shoulders," the statement by army spokesman Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman added.
