The Defence Headquaeters (DHQ), said that the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed some Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) vehicles and eliminated several of their fighters along the Jakana axis of Borno State, as part of its continued intensive air operations to rid the North East of the country of terrorist elements.
Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche made this disclosure in a statement in Abuja.
He noted that this success was achieved through air strikes executed after intelligence reports revealed that the BHTs were conducting another logistics movement through the Jakana-Mainok axis of the State.
“A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft dispatched to the area subsequently spotted the BHTs’ vehicles at a location South of Jakana. Accordingly, the Air Task Force scrambled NAF helicopter gunships to engage the convoy in successive waves of attack, delivering accurate hits in the target area which resulted in the destruction of 2 BHT vehicles.
“Several of the terrorists were also eliminated while one of the logistics vehicles was seen overturned”.
General Enenche said that the Armed Forces of Nigeria will not relent until all enemies of the nation are neutralised and normalcy is restored to all troubled zones of the country.
