NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, said in a statement that the jets successfully carried out air strikes and destroyed the terrorists’ vehicle workshops, fuel and ammunition dumps all within the Sambisa forest.
Thus, to further degrade the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) assets, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jets, on Tuesday, hit and destroy some targets at Sambisa forest.
This feat by the Nigerian Air Force 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.
In view of the above, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar was of the view with these successful strikes on the insurgents, their capabilities had been further degraded.
The latest strikes is to pave the way for the final onslaught by the land forces to meet the Commander-in-Chief, President Mohammadu Buhari’s directive to bring insurgency in the north-east to an end.
