Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), has said that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE on Sunday, clamped down another Boko Haram terrorists’ hideout in the Sambisa forest of Borno State.

”The operation was executed on June 16, after persistent Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions reveal heavy presence of BHTs at a new camp with several structures hidden under the thick foliage of the Forest.

”Accordingly, the ATF dispatched an Alpha Jet to attack the location.

”Its bombs hit the target area, with devastating effects on several of the camouflaged structures, neutralising their BHT occupants,” he said.

Daramola promised that the Nigerian Air Force would continue to partner with sister security agencies on ground to ensure the complete eradication of terrorist groups in the northeastern part of the country.
