Air Strikes Destroy B’Haram Camps, Kill Fighters in N/Borno
Two Boko Haram terrorists’ hideouts have been destroyed by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole in separate air interdiction missions at Ngwuri Gana along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis, and at Jumacheri area near Damasak.
A statement by the Defence Media Operations (DMO) Coordinator, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, indicated that troops also neutralized scores of BH fighters, in the northern part of Borno State.
According to the statement, the feat was achieved through separate interdiction missions carried out on 21 and 22 October 2020, following Human Intelligence reports, as well as series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, indicating that BH terrorists had assembled at the 2 locations, in preparation to launch attacks against nearby troops’ positions.
“The hits by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships dispatched by the Air Task Force to attack the 2 target areas resulted in the destruction of some structures as well as the neutralization of dozens of terrorists,” it said.
