Several fighters belonging to the Boko Haram terrorist group yesterday lost their lives as the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole conducted series of bombardments targeted at the group’s logistics facility in Borno state.
This was confirmed by the Coordinator, Defence Information, Major General John Enenche in a press statement.
The operation which was conducted at Yamud along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis of Borno State followed series of credible intelligence reports indicating that the settlement was one of the locations where the terrorists store their logistics and assemble to launch attacks.
Series of follow-up aerial surveillance missions also showed significant number of terrorists within the settlement and also identified some compounds that were being used as storage facilities and meeting venues.
Accordingly, the Air Task Force detailed its fighter jets to attack the location scoring accurate hits leading to the destruction of the designated target structures as well as the neutralization of several of the terrorists.
The battle damage assessment video has now been declassified.
