INSECURITY: NAF jets bombard Boko Haram logistics base in Sambisa

INSECURITY: NAF jets bombard Boko Haram logistics base in Sambisa


Military operations to wipe out terrorists ravaging North East Nigeria have continued to yield positive results with the bombardment of another terrorist stronghold in Sambisa forest, Borno State.

Forty-nine Boko Haram fighters – Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād – were said to have been killed in the process after two Super Tukano fighter aircraft belonging to the Nigerian Air Force, hit their camps in the forest.


Daily Sun gathered that the multiple airstrikes conducted by the Air Task Force, Operation Hadin Kai in August 30 and 31, specifically hit the terrorist camps of Gargash, Minna and Gazuwa, in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

It was gathered that the airstrike targeted a moving truck of the terrorists in Gargash killing all its occupants on Aug 30.

A military source who does not want to be mentioned in print hinted that combat aircraft took another turn attacking targets at another location given as Minna, scoring crucial hits on the hideouts leading to the neutralization of several Boko Haram fighters while others escaped with bullet wounds.


According to the source, “on August 31, another air strike was conducted in Gazuwa after intelligence surveillance revealed a large presence of the fighters who were engaging in some sort of transactions.

“The ATF detailed its fighter jets to attack the two locations, killing scores of the terrorist and destroying their equipment, some of which were seen engulfed in flames.”

The source said that about 29 terrorists were neutralised in Gazuwa, one truck with four fighters killed in Gargash while 16 others fighters met their Waterloo in Minna.

Continuing, the source said “the Nigerian Air Force, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain their offensives against the terrorists in the North East.


Recall that the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, charged Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Operational Commanders to ‘show no mercy’ and ensure they employ maximum firepower against terrorists posing security threats in the country.
