The Nigerian Air force said on Saturday that its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole on Wednesday December 1, 2020 recorded a massive success against Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State with the bombing and elimination of many terrorists in Sambisa Forest axis.
The NAF said the feat was recorded near Bula Bello when a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft, whilst returning from another mission, spotted a BHT gun truck under a tree along with scores of BHT fighters converged around the tree on the outskirts of the settlement, ostensibly preparing for an attack against nearby troops’ positions.
A statement by Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, Director of Public Relations and Information said, “Some of the BHTs were also seen pushing another vehicle to a location under another tree in the area.
“Accordingly, the ATF scrambled its attack aircraft to engage the location neutralizing some of the terrorists.
“Follow-on attacks were also carried out to take out some locations within Bula Bello where the BHTs were tracked to.
“The jets took turns attacking the target area killing more of the BHTs and destroying some of their structures.
“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.”
