In fight against insecurity, the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed a Boko Haram terrorists’ logistics storage facility.
Also, the military neutralized several of their fighters at Yamud, along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis of Borno.
This was disclosed by the coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen. John Enenche, in a statement on Wednesday, August 12, in Abuja.
According to him, the operation was executed on Aug. 11, following credible intelligence reports.

“Accordingly, the Air Task Force detailed its fighter jets to attack the location scoring accurate hits leading to the destruction of the designated target structures as well as the neutralization of several of the terrorists,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the governors of Niger and Kaduna states, Alhaji Sani Bello and Malam Nasir El-Rufai have hailed the successes recorded by the Nigerian Army in dealing with banditry in the North West and North Central part of the country.
The governors gave the commendation during a visit to the Special Army Super Camp 4 in Faskari, Katsina State on Wednesday to ascertain the level of successes of the recently launched Exercise Sahel Sanity.
On his part, Bello said the establishment of the super camp and exercise Sahel Sanity had achieved tremendous successes against bandits within one month.
He said that farmers in many communities that were hitherto affected by banditry had returned to their farms, expressing confidence that banditry would soon be a thing of the past.
The governor also commended the officers and men of Nigerian army for their sacrifice and urged them to sustain the tempo.
“I am highly impressed by the super camp and I think this will go a long way towards improving the confidence level of the communities affected. We can see that farming activities have resumed in most of the communities.
“That has always been an issue; we have always been concerned with regards to the economic activities in the rural areas. I must commend the COAS and his officers and men for a job well done.
“I also would like to thank Mr President for this initiative as this will bring succour to the local people that are affected by the activities of these bandits,” he said.
Bello also expressed optimism that the planned expansion of operations in the region by establishing more camps would go a long way towards addressing these challenges.
According to him, most of the forest areas are connected to our states and most are between the boundaries of various states.
