The Nigerian Armed Forces on Wednesday night said that its Air Task Force (ATF) under Operation LAFIYA DOLE, in Northeast region destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) hideout and killed “some of their fighters” at Kacha Korle in the Sambisa Forest general area of Borno State.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that “the operation was executed on 10 June 2020 (Wednesday), following intelligence reports indicating that the location was being used as a staging area and meeting venue for the terrorists from where they planned and launched attacks against troops’ locations and civilian settlements within the Sector 1 Area of Responsibility, including the Maiduguri-Damaturu Highway.

“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft and fighter jets to attack the hideout. Overhead the target area, many BHT fighters were observed in and around some prominent structures. These were engaged in successive passes by the attack aircraft leading to the destruction of some of the structures as well as the neutralization of several of the terrorists.”
