The Nigerian Air Force has bombed Sambisa Forest, killing several insurgents and destroying their structures and logistic stores.
“The strike were conducted after intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions as the troops proceeded to bomb the ‘S’ region in Sambisa forest.
“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,” he said.
“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,” Enenche stated.
