By Augustine Osayande
The Nigerian Armed Forces through the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE have destroyed some of Boko Haram’s logistics facilities at Parisu in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.
Confirming the report, Coordinator of Defence Media Operations, Defence Major General John Enenche, said some Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) were killed during the operation on 30 April 2020
Enenche said that the air strike which was executed as a precursor to further air and ground operations was conducted after intelligence reports revealed that the terrorists had resumed use of the settlement as a staging area to launch attacks against nearby troops’ locations.
He further stated that recent aerial surveillance missions had also shown significant terrorist activities in the area while identifying some compounds housing the fighters and their logistics items.
“Consequently, the Air Task Force dispatched its fighter jets to attack the location. The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jets, while taking turns to engage the target area, scored accurate bomb and rocket strikes, resulting in the destruction of some of the structures as well as the killing of several terrorists,” Enenche said.
The Coordinator of Defence Media Operations Defence added that the Armed Forces of Nigeria would continue to sustain the offensive against the enemies of the country, until peace and normalcy were restored in all parts of Nigeria.
