The Nigerian Air Force’s Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has raided and destroyed a Boko Haram’s logistics base in Sambisa forest, Borno state.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said on Tuesday in Abuja that the operation was carried out on Monday.

The operation was carried out after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed a resurgence of human and vehicular activities at the logistics base, which had hitherto been abandoned.

Accordingly, the ATF scrambled two Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the location.

Overhead the target area, several structures and vehicles were seen camouflaged under the thick vegetation of the Forest, with significant human activity observed within the area.

Daramola Said:
“The attack aircraft recorded direct hits on the target area resulting in the destruction of several structures and neutralisation of some BHTs,”.

He also added that the terrorists, who survived the bomb strikes, were seen fleeing the area. The spokesman said the criminals were mopped-up in follow-on attacks.
