Military says airstrikes destroys Boko Haram Terrorists’ logistics base, kills “several of their fighters”

The Nigerian Armed Forces on Wednesday said that the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has “destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) logistics storage facility and neutralized several of their fighters at Yamud along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis of Borno State.”

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations (DMO), Defence Headquarters, Major General John Enenche, said in a statement that the airstrikes operation was executed on Tuesday as a result of “credible intelligence reports indicating that the settlement was one of the locations where the terrorists store their logistics and assemble to launch attacks.”

Enenche noted that “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.”
