Nigeria Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole (OPLD) has pounded the compounds housing the leaders of Boko Haram Terrorists in Sambisa forest.
According to Major General John Enenche, coordinator of Media Operations of the Defence Headquarters, he said on Thursday that the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole (OPLD) has destroyed compounds housing the leaders of Boko Haram Terrorists specifically at Bulawa on the fringes of the Borno Sambisa Area.
Enenche explained that on April 21, the airstrikes were carried out on the basis of reliable human intelligence as well as surveillance, tracking and recognition missions that contributed to the identification of target compounds within the settlement.
He clarified that the Air Task Force fighter jets sent to take out the compounds scored accurate hits in the target area contributing to the destruction of some of the structures.
“Boko Haram fighters, who attempted to reposition to engage the attacking aircraft, were mopped-up in follow-on attacks by the jets.
“The Armed Forces of Nigeria in furtherance of the objective of restoring peace and security in the North East, will sustain the offensive against the enemies of our Nation,”.
