Boko Haram’s vehicle workshops, fuel and ammunition dumps in Sambisa forest have been bombed by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets.
A statement by NAF’s Director of Public Relations & Information, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, which made this known yesterday, gave an assurance that the latest air strikes have increased the possibility of ending insurgency in the Northeast.
NAF attributed the success of its air strikes to expert use of drones and the ATR-42 aerial surveillance aircraft.
“In a renewed drive to further degrade the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) assets, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha jets have successfully carried out air strikes and destroyed the sect’s vehicle workshops, fuel and ammunition dumps all within the Sambisa forest.
“This feat by NAF came as a result of a painstaking Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) efforts by the NAF’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and ATR-42 platforms.
