Nigerian Air Force Saturday said more Boko Haram Terrorists are being attacked with air strikes in Sambisa so as to prevent the insurgents any chance to recapture any Nigerian territory.
It was acknowledged that the building housing the terrorists and the terrorists were neutrilized after the bombardment of the area by the fighter jets. Apparently, the NAF air interdiction were focussed on the hideouts of the terrorists in Sambisa.
A statement in a video says “In the closing stages of Operation RUWAN WUTA II, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) continued to rain significant fire on Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) hideouts, with intensive day and night aerial bombardments.
” On 30 October 2017, the NAF conducted an air interdiction mission on a blue-roofed structure in TALALA, a BHT infested location in Sambisa.
“Intelligence reports from NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance platforms as well as Human Intelligence had revealed that a sizeable number of BHTs were holding a meeting in the blue-roofed building.
” Consequently, a NAF fighter aircraft was scrambled to attack the building. Subsequent Battle Damage Assessment revealed that the building and its occupants were neutralized as a result of the air strike.
” It would be recalled that the NAF initiated Operation RUWAN WUTA II, on 23 October 2017, to further decimate the ability of the BHTs to freely operate with a view to giving advantage to our surface forces and thereby frustrate the efforts of the BHTs to recapture any Nigerian territory.”
