Nigerian Air Force destroys Boko Haram’s camp in Sambisa forest


Nigerian Air Force (NAF), through the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, on Thursday, 5 March, 2020, dispatched attack aircraft to destroy a terrorists’ camp at Alafa ‘C’ in the heart of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

Confirming the report, Nigerian Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said the attack was undertaken following confirmatory Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions which established that several compounds in the settlement were being used by the terrorists to house and train their fighters.

He said the bomb strikes and rocket salvos from the ATF’s fighter jets hit the designated compounds, obliterating most of the structures and neutralizing some of the Boko Haram terrorists’ occupants.

Daramola said the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its air campaign against the terrorists’ hideouts to shape the battlespace for the effective conduct of further ground and air operations.
