It was gathered on Wednesday, August 9 that the Air Force has renewed its bombing of suspected Boko Haram targets in Sambisa Forest in a move to stop the sect’s activities.
Fighter jets operating as components of Operation Lafiya Dole launched four major strikes against the sect yesterday, killing many suspected terrorists and destroying many insurgents’ camps.
A statement by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) spokesman Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, said a few of the terrorists were seen evacuating their casualities after the strikes.
The statement, supported by a video footage, said: “In furtherance of operations to completely defeat the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) Organisation, on 7 August 2017, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Component of Operation LAFIYA DOLE conducted an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission over Parisu in the Sambisa general area.
“During the ISR mission, a large group of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) was seen converging under a tree close to a prominent zinc-roofed structure. Part of the structure was concealed by the foliage of a tree, making it a seemingly unobtrusive gathering point for the terrorists.
“A confirmatory ISR mission indicated that the structure was indeed a BHT hideout housing a large number of terrorists. Accordingly, on 8 August 2017, the Air Component detailed fighter aircraft to strike the target in succession.
“Following the first and second strikes, the building was completely destroyed and the location was strafed during the third attack. The fourth attack was re-directed to a close-by building, where BHT activity was also noticed.
“Subsequent Battle Damage Assessment revealed that the BHT hideout was completely reduced to rubble and several BHTs were killed while a few of them were seen evacuating the casualties.”
