Troops kill several Boko Haram fighters in Borno

The Defence Headquarters said on Saturday the Air Task Force component of Operation Lafiya Dole killed several Boko Haram fighters and destroyed their logistics base within the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, said the feat was achieved in an air interdiction mission executed on April 16 as part of ongoing operations against the terrorists.

According to him, the airstrike was conducted after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions confirmed that makeshift structures hidden under the dense vegetation of the area were being used by the terrorists for their logistics.

He said: “Consequently, the Air Task Force dispatched its fighter jets to attack the hideout, leading to the destruction of some of the structures as well as the killing of several terrorists.

“Post-strike battle damage assessment showed the logistics facility engulfed in flames.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria, in furtherance of the objective of restoring peace and security in the North East, will sustain the offensive against the enemies of our nation.”
