The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has bombed three Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) enclave in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State and taken out their hideouts in Alagarno, including a compound housing some high-value BHT leaders.
It also destroyed no fewer than two Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) gun trucks and eliminated some of their fighters along the Wamdeo-Chul axis in the Southern part of Borno State.
Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche made this disclosure in a statement.
He sat the compound housing terrorist leaders were concealed under thick vegetation and located 2.3Km North East of Kafa, and was being used by the terrorists to coordinate their nefarious activities.
“The destruction of the locations was achieved through multiple airstrikes executed on 6 January 2021 as the ATF dispatched appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and attack helicopters to engage the target areas in the day and night raids. The BHTs were spotted under the dense vegetation of the locations and the NAF attack aircraft took turns in engaging the targets, killing several of them,” he said.
“Upon sighting the NAF helicopter gunships, the terrorists, mounted on gun trucks and motorcycles, attempted to beat a hasty retreat whilst firing at the attack aircraft,” he said.
He noted that they were hit by the helicopters’ barrage of rocket and cannon fire, which resulted in the immobilization of two of the gun trucks, one of which was seen engulfed in flames.
General Enenche assured that the Armed Forces of Nigeria will not relent until all enemies of the nation are neutralized and normalcy is restored to all troubled zones.
