Nigerian Air Force Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE have destroyed a boko haram terrorists (BHTs) Camp at Abulam, a settlement on the fringes of the Allagarno Forest, in Borno State, North East Nigeria.

In a statement, the Director Public Relations and Information NAF, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola noted that the operation was executed after series of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that some buildings within the settlement were being used by the terrorists to store their supplies and other resources.

Daramola said: “the ATF therefore dispatched helicopter gunships and ground attack aircraft to engage the location in successive strikes, scoring devastating hits on the target area leading to destruction of several of the buildings and neutralization of their BHT occupants.”

The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.
