Insurgency: Military airstrikes destroy terrorists hideout, kill scores in Sambisa forest [VIDEO]

The Defence Headquarters says the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole has eliminated scores of terrorists in an airstrike in Sambisa forest, Borno State.

The Coordinator, Defence Operations, Major General John Enenche, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Enenche said many terrorists were killed in the airstrike at the ‘S’ Region in the heart of the Sambisa Forest.

According to him “the operation was executed on Monday after a series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.”

The statement read: “Air interdiction missions being conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE have continued to deal decisive blows on terrorist elements in the North East of the Country. The latest of these was achieved yesterday, 28 December 2020, at the ‘S’ Region in the heart of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

“The airstrike, which was executed employing a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets, was carried out after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that the terrorists responsible for recent attacks in the Southern part of Borno and Northern part of Adamawa State had originated from the location.

“Accordingly, the NAF attack aircraft engaged the target area in successive passes, leading to the destruction of some of their structures and logistics stores, including a suspected anti-aircraft gun station as the terrorists fired at the NAF aircraft. Several insurgents were also neutralized in the process.”
