The DHQ says it troops of Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has recorded another success in its air campaign against Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in the North East of the Country.
In a statement released by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major Gen. John Enenche says the latest of these was achieved through air strikes executed on 10 November 2020 at Njimia and Dure in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.
Enenche also revealed that the attacks, which resulted in massive damage to the BHTs’ structures as well as the neutralization of several of their fighters, were conducted after series of aerial surveillance missions showed resurgence of activities in the 2 locations.
According to him, “Consequently, the ATF dispatched appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) attack aircraft to engage the locations.
He said, the NAF jets scored devastating hits in their successive bomb and rocket runs resulting in the destruction of the terrorists’ structures and neutralization of several BHTs.
“The Armed Forces of Nigeria will not relent until all enemies of the Nation are neutralised and normalcy is restored to all troubled zones”, he added.
