NAF aircraft decimates Boko Haram meeting/assembly venue at Boboshe, Borno state

The Nigerian Air force said its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has decimated a location at Boboshe on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State, being used by Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) as a meeting venue.

A statement by Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, Director, NAF Public Relations and Informatiin said “The attack was conducted on Sunday, 13 October 2019, following successive days of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions”.

He said the missions were supported by “Human Intelligence reports, that established that a building within the settlement was being used as a rendezvous by the BHTs where their commanders assemble to take instructions before launching attacks against own troops and innocent civilians”.

“Accordingly, the ATF detailed its fighter aircraft to attack the hideout, scoring accurate hits within the designated area leading to the decimation of the target structure.

“Several BHTs were also killed as a result of the strikes.

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