Lethal Bomb, Rocket Strikes Kill B’Haram Fighters at Yale

The Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole, using lethal bomb and rocket strikes, has destroyed some dwellings of Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) leaders.

The ATF troops, it was learnt, also neutralized several BH fighters in separate air strikes executed in Sambisa Forest, and a settlement about 1.7 Km East of Yale, both in Borno State.

The Defence Media Operations (DMO), through its Coordinator, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said the air onslaught was in continuation of the air interdiction missions, being conducted as part of subsidiary Operation Wutar Tabki 2.

Enenche, in a statement, disclosed that the air raids were undertaken on Monday.

According to him, credible Human Intelligence reports and series of aerial surveillance missions, had indicated that some of the BHTs that carried out recent attacks against innocent civilians were harboured in makeshift structures, under the dense vegetation of the Sambisa Forest.

He said others were tracked to the settlement East of Yale.

“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships to attack the 2 locations. The attack aircraft, while taking turns to engage the targets, delivered lethal bomb and rocket strikes, resulting in the destruction of some of the structures as well as the killing of several terrorists,” added the DMO Coordinator.
