SAN FRANCISCO, September 24, (THEWILL) – Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says an attack aircraft of the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) Camp at Abulam, a settlement on the fringes of the Allagarno Forest, in Borno State.
In a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the operation was executed on 22 September 2019 after series of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
According to Daramola, the intelligence revealed that some buildings within the settlement were being used by the terrorists to store their supplies and other resources.
“The ATF, therefore, dispatched helicopter gunships and ground attack aircraft to engage the location in successive strikes, scoring devastating hits on the target area leading to the destruction of several of the buildings and neutralization of their BHT occupants.
“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast”, the statement added.
