The Defence Headquarters has said that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has launched airstrikes on terrorists’ locations at Bula Bello and Ngoske on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno.

Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, made this known in a statement on Sunday.

Enenche said the airstrikes destroyed Boko Haram terrorists’ facilities and killed several fighters.

According to him, the air interdiction missions were executed on June 18 and June 19.

He said: “Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets as well as an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft to engage the 2 locations.

“The NAF jets scored devastating hits in their multiple waves of attacks resulting in the obliteration of designated portions of the terrorists’ hideouts as well as the neutralization of several of their fighters.”
