Nigerian Air Force NAF has destroyed a boko haram terrorist hideout and killed some fighters at Alafa on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

According to the Director Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the move is in continuation of NAF’s sustained efforts to wipe out remnants of boko haram terrorists in the Northeast of Nigeria.

Daramola noted that the air strike was conducted following Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that revealed the presence of the terrorists, along with their logistics supplies and equipment, in a group of structures within the settlement.

He said “the ATF dispatched 2 Alpha Jets to attack the location, scoring accurate hits in the target area, which led to the destruction of some of the structures and equipment as well as the killing of several terrorists”. 

He said the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its operations against the terrorists in the Northeast.
