SAMBISA: NAF ‘UAV’ DESTROYS BOKO HARAM LOGISTICS BASE
Following its determination to degrade remnants of Boko Haram terrorists still holed up in and around the vast Sambisa Forest, Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base used by members of the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) group.
A statement signed by the Director, Airforce Public Relation and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa said, “The UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of BHTs at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest.
At the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs and vehicles.
The multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location, as can be seen from the enclosed video of the UAV strike, strongly suggests that it may be either an ammunition/fuel storage or weapons/technical workshop.
This strike is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram Sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops.
