The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed some Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) structures and killed several of their fighters at Ngoske on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.
John Enenche, Coordinator, Defence Media Operations (DMO) said this in a statement in Abuja.
Eneche said the operation was achieved through air strikes executed on 20 October on the heels of credible intelligence reports indicating that the terrorists had resumed use of the settlement as a staging area to launch attacks.
“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, which scored devastating hits in their multiple waves of attacks resulting in the obliteration of designated portions of the BHTs’ hideout as well as the neutralization of several of their fighters”, he said.
Meanwhile, Eneche said the troops of Operation Safe Haven delivered drugs to Rim Primary Healthcare Clinic renovated by the Defence Headquarters at Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State in the last week.
He noted that it was part of the Civil Military Cooperation Activities of the Headquarters.
