The Nigerian Air Force has released yet another footage from their operation in the fight against terrorism and banditry in the country, stating that in their sustained air strikes against terrorists’ targets in Borno State, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has severely degraded another Boko Haram Terrorists hideout in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

According to the statement which was released on Monday 17th June 2019 by the Director of Public Relations and Information NAF, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said that the latest operation in the Sambisa Forest was executed yesterday, 16 June 2019. He said:

“The operation was made possible after a persistent Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed the heavy presence of Boko Haram Terrorist at a new camp with several structures hidden under the thick foliage of the Forest. Accordingly, the Air Task Force (ATF) dispatched an Alpha Jet to attack the location. Its bombs hit the target area, with devastating effects on several of the camouflaged structures, neutralizing their Boko Haram Terrorist occupants”.

“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain the effort to completely degrade the terrorists in the Northeast” Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola stated.
