The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has obliterated a Boko Haram Terrorists meeting venue and neutralised several of their fighters at Ngoske on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno.
NAF director of public relations and information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, disclosed this in a statement on Friday, October 18 in Abuja.
He said the operation was executed through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE on Friday.
“The attack was executed today, Oct.18, following successive days of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, which were aimed at identifying locations housing the BHTs’ leadership as well as their rendezvous positions.
“Intelligence derived from the ISR missions led to the designation of two buildings within Ngoske that served as assembly areas for the terrorists from where they launch attacks against own troops positions and innocent civilians.
“Accordingly, the ATF detailed its ground attack aircraft to engage the hideout, scoring devastatingly accurate hits which led to the complete destruction of the two buildings as well as the neutralisation of several terrorists,” he said.
Daramola said the NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the north east.
Recall that a Boko Haram meeting venue was bombed during an air raid launched by the Nigerian Air Force.
Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola who is the director of public relations and information of NAF confirmed this on Monday, October 14.
He said the operation was carried out on Sunday, October 13, at Boboshe area on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno state.
