The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram's tactical command centre and neutralized some of their fighters at Yuwe in the Sambisa forest area of Borno state.
The operation is in continuation of air interdiction missions being conducted under the subsidiary Operation Long Reach in the northeast.
A statement by the coordinator, defence Media operations, Major-General John Enenche, stated that the latest operation was executed on Wednesday, June 17 after a series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions observed the significant presence of terrorists in the settlement.
“Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets dispatched by the ATF to take out the command centre took turns in attacking the location leading to its destruction and surrounding structures as well as the neutralization of several fighters,” the statement revealed.
The Nigerian military has been recording successes against the insurgents since it increased the hardware in its infantry.
The military has since launched and sustained a massive operation and has consistently taken the war to the insurgents.
Experts say there is a need for the president to improve the military budgets and do serious shopping for the Nigerian military.
Meanwhile, the Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights (CALSER) has called on the Federal Government and United Nations to step up efforts to apprehend sponsors of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorist groups.
The centre urged the FG and the UN to beam searchlight towards saboteurs jeopardizing the military's remarkable gains.
In a statement signed by its convener, Princess Ajibola on Thursday, June 11, CALSER alleged that some foreign and indigenous organisations, local politicians as well as certain self-acclaimed activists and media personalities are fuelling insurgency for their personal gains.
In a related development, the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance (CSGGG) has condemned a video on social media mocking the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant-General Tukur Buratai and the Nigerian Army.
CSGGG convener, Comrade Ogakwu Dominic, in a statement sent to journalists on Saturday, June 13, described the video as an unpatriotic act.
