The war against insecurity has continued to record massive success as troops of Operation Lafiya Dole destroyed the dwellings of Boko Haram leaders in an emphatic victory that also saw many insurgents neutralised at Parisu area of Sambisa forest.
In a statement on Monday, July 6, the Defence Headquarters disclosed that the operation also saw a score of Boko Haram fighters annihilated in separate airstrikes at Bula Bello.
Legit.ng gathers that the air interdiction missions were executed on Friday, July 3, as part of the ongoing subsidiary Operation Long Reach II.
The airstrike attacks were carried out after intelligence reports indicated a resurgence of terrorists’ activities in the two settlements.
"Parisu, with its booby-trapped access routes, fortified checkpoints and structures camouflaged under the forest vegetation, served as a stronghold for the Boko Haram Terrorists commanders, while recent aerial surveillance missions showed increased activities of the terrorists in a cluster of structures in the middle of Bula Bello," the statement read.
"Consequently, the Air Task Force dispatched its fighter jets to attack the 2 locations. NAF jets, while taking turns to engage the targets, scored accurate bomb and rocket strikes resulting in the destruction of some of the structures as well as the killing of several terrorists."
