THE Nigerian Air Force (NAF) said on Friday its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed Boko Haram sect’s logistics facility at Gujeri, in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

The destruction of the terrorists’ structures, according to NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, was carried out in a Tuesday night raid.

NAF had said last Wednesday that the air troops of Operation Lafiya Dole destroyed some structures in the terrorists’ camp at Abulam general area of the once dreaded forest.

NAF said the airstrikes followed series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that identified some makeshift structures under trees in the settlement that were being used by the terrorists to store fuel and other items for the maintenance of their vehicles.”

It said: “The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) logistics facility at Gujeri in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

“This was achieved in night-time airstrikes executed on 31 December 2019 pursuant to series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions that identified some makeshift structures under trees in the settlement that were being used by the terrorists to store fuel and other items for the maintenance of their vehicles.

“Accordingly, the ATF dispatched its combat helicopters to attack the location recording devastating hits in the target area resulting in the destruction of the storage facilities as well as other structures in the camp.

“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the Northeast.”
