The Nigerian Air Force says it has destroyed a Boko Haram logistics facility in Gujeri in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State , the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The NAF said the operation was executed through the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole.
The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola made this known in a statement on Friday.
He said the attack was carried out on Tuesday, pursuant to the series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions.
Daramola said the ISR missions identified some makeshift structures under some trees in the settlement that were being used by the terrorists to store fuel and other items for the maintenance of their vehicles.
He said, “Accordingly, the ATF dispatched its combat helicopters to attack the location recording devastating hits in the target area resulting in the destruction of the storage facilities as well as other structures in the camp.”
Daramola said the NAF, operating with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the North- East.
