The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets have killed several Boko Haram terrorists after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that the terrorists responsible for recent attacks in the Southern part of Borno and Northern part of Adamawa State had originated from the location.
Coordinator of Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche made this disclosure in a statement in Abuja.
He said that air interdiction missions being conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole have continued to deal decisive blows on terrorist elements in the North East of the country.
He revealed that the latest of these was achieved at the ‘S’ Region in the heart of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.
“The airstrike, which was executed employing a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets, was carried out after a series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that the terrorists responsible for recent attacks in the Southern part of Borno and Northern part of Adamawa State had originated from the location.
“Accordingly, the NAF attack aircraft engaged the target area in successive passes, leading to the destruction of some of their structures and logistics stores, including a suspected anti-aircraft gun station as the terrorists fired at the NAF aircraft”.
General Enenche concluded that several insurgents were neutralized in the process.
