He said: “The latest of these were achieved on 1 and 2 December 2020, at Bone and Mudu, 2 settlements along the Yale-Kumshe axis of Borno State as well as at a third location, simply known as the ā€˜Sā€™ Region, within the heart of the Sambisa Forest.,” he said.

Major General Enenche adding further, said that:

The air strikes, which were executed employing a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, were carried out after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed pattern-of-life evidence indicating that the 3 locations were being used as staging areas where the terrorists store their weapons and logistics items as well as plan and launch attacks.

The NAF attack aircraft engaged the target areas in successive passes, leading to the destruction of some of their structures and logistics stores as well as the neutralization of several of the insurgents.
A suspected anti-aircraft gun station was also taken out at the Sambisa ā€˜Sā€™ Region as the terrorists fired at the NAF attack aircraft,” he added.
