Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists’ hideouts have been hit by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole, killing several fighters in the Lake Chad, and Sambisa forest in Borno.
Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, said this in a statement on Friday.
The attacks were launched under a subsidiary operation tagged ‘’Operation Hail Storm’’.
Among the targeted location was Bula Sabo, which is on the fringes of the Sambisa forest, identified as a settlement used as dwelling place by some terrorist commanders.
The devastating hits were done by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships which targeted buildings, including a logistics facility.
“In the same vein, Dole, which is located in the Yale-Kokiwa axis near Dikwa, was targeted because the settlement was being used by the terrorists as a venue to plan and launch attacks against locations in the surrounding areas.”
Enenche also disclosed that the NAF attack aircraft similarly engaged the location, inflicting heavy damage on the insurgents’ structures and neutralising several fighters.
