Boko Haram Terrorists are now in disarray at Sambisa Forest following
bombardment by the Air Task Force Operation Lafiya Dole, the Military
said yesterday.

Also scores of the Boko Haram Terrorists were destroyed yesterday and
their facilities destroyed in massive airstrike at Alafa Yagayaga in
Borno State.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche,
said the operation was executed on 15th May, 2020 following credible
intelligence reports as well as series of Intelligence, Surveillance
and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, which showed that the terrorists
had upscaled their activities in the settlement by importing
additional fighters and increasing their logistics stocks preparatory
to attacks on troops’ locations and surrounding civilian settlements.

He said the ATF dispatched an enhanced force package of attack
aircraft and a surveillance platform to engage the location.

“Overhead, the target area, significant activity of the terrorists was
observed in different parts of the settlement. The Nigerian Air Force
(NAF) fighter jets took turns in attacking the target area,
neutralizing many BHTs as well as destroying their logistics
facilities and other structures in successive passes, thereby further
degrading their will to fight,” he said.

He assured that the Armed Forces of Nigeria, operating in concert with
other security agencies and stakeholders, will sustain the offensive
against the enemies.

“We shall not relent until peace and normalcy are restored not only
in the North East but also in every other troubled region of our
beloved country,” he said.
