The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says it’s Air Task Force (ATF) for Operation LAFIYA DOLE has decimated a location at Bula Korege on the fringes of Sambisa Forest in Borno State, being used by Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) as a meeting venue.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore, Ibikunle Daramola discthis in a statement on Monday.

He revealed that the attack was conducted on 25 May 2019 following successive days of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, coupled with Human Intelligence reports, that established that some structures within the settlement were being used as a rendezvous by the BHTs from where they assemble to launch attacks against own troops and innocent civilians.

“Accordingly, the ATF detailed a fighter aircraft to attack the hideout, scoring hits within the target area leading to significant degrading of the BHT structures. Several BHTs were also killed as a result of the strikes,” Daramola said.

He assured that the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its operations to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast.
