By Chuks Oyema-Aziken

The Nigerian Airforce has carried out an operation leading to the destruction of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) logistics facility at Gujeri in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola in a statement said the successful mission was carried out by helicopters in the fleet of the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

He said the air strikes on 31st December 2019 followed series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that identified some makeshift structures.

He said the structures under some trees in the settlement were being used by the terrorists to store fuel and other items for the maintenance of their vehicles.

“Accordingly, the ATF dispatched its combat helicopters to attack the location recording devastating hits in the target area resulting in the destruction of the storage facilities as well as other structures in the camp.

“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.”
