In continuation of its mandate to clear out buildings, camps and hideouts of remnants of Boko Haram Terrorists in the fringes of Sambisa Forests, Nigerian Airforce Jets under ‘Operation Ruwan Wuta’ on Sunday bombed and destroyed several structures where the terrorists have been hibernating, killing scores while many scampered for their lives.
A statement by the Nigerian Airforce giving details of the bombardment which is the second in four days said, “On the fourth day of the ongoing intensive bombardment of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) hideouts in the Sambisa general area, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) conducted air interdiction on a Boko Haram Terrorist Settlement in Njimia on 10 September 2017.
The statement signed by Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, Director of Public Relations and Information added, “NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms had previously confirmed that several structures used by the terrorists as meeting points were in the location.
“The air interdiction was conducted by the Alpha Jet and F-7Ni aircraft, which took turns to attack the location with bombs.
“Subsequent Battle Damage Assessment showed that the targeted Boko Haram Terrorists structures were destroyed as a result of the attacks.
“The attacks were designed to further break the will and capability of the Boko Haram Terrorists to regroup against own surface forces.”
