The Defence Headquarters has said that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed Boko Haram’s logistics base in Borno State.
Major Gen. John Enenche, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
Enenche also said that scores of terrorists were killed in an air raid.
He stated that the operation was executed on June 25 at Tongule and Bukar Meram.
According to him, the air raid was launched under the subsidiary of Operation Long Reach after a series of surveillance missions indicated a resurgence of terrorists’ activities at the two settlements.
He said that credible intelligence indicated frequent convergence of terrorists at Tongue where about 35 terrorists were spotted by the NAF surveillance aircraft in different parts of the settlement.
According to him, the aircraft vectored the fighter jets to attack the target area.
“The munitions from the jets hit designated areas within the settlement, destroying some structures and taking out many of the terrorists.
“Similarly, at Bukar Meram, a Boko Haram logistics hub on the fringes of Lake Chad, the airstrikes were executed in multiple waves resulting in the obliteration of designated portions of the terrorists’ facilities.
“Several of their fighters were also killed in the process.
“The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, commends the ATF for their dedication and professionalism.
“The Defence Headquarters equally urges them to intensify the air offensive against the terrorists and all other criminal elements threatening the peace and security of our beloved country,” he said.
