Martha Obi, Abuja


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.

In a statement, the Director of  Public Relations and Information. Air Commodore Ibiikunle Daramola noted that  the operation was executed  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.

Accordingly, the ATF dispatched an Alpha Jet to attack the location.

Daramola said “its bombs hit the target area, with devastating effects on several of the camouflaged structures, neutralizing their BHT occupants”.

He said the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain the effort to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast.
