In continuation of its sustained air strikes against terrorists’ targets in Borno State, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has severely degraded another Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) hideout in the Sambisa Forest.
According to a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI) Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the operation was executed Sunday, June 16, 2019, after persistent Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed heavy presence of BHTs at a new camp with several structures hidden under the thick foliage of the Forest.
He noted that accordingly, the ATF dispatched an Alpha Jet to attack the location.
“Its bombs hit the target area, with devastating effects on several of the camouflaged structures, neutralizing their BHT occupants”, the DOPRI said.
He further added that the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain the effort to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast.
