The Air Task Force of the Operation Lafiya Dole launched an attack on Boko Haram insurgents operating in the Sambisa forest area of Borno State.
This was disclosed in a communique issued on Monday by the Coordinator, Defense Media Operations, Major General John Enenche.
Enenchen stated that multiple airstrikes were launched in the vicinity of the Sambisa forest on November 14, while mentioning that several of the terrorists were killed after the Air Task Force dispatched attack aircraft to engage the target areas where the armed fighters were spotted under the dense vegetation.
The two locations at Gobara and the Sambisa region were said to have been used by the terrorists as logistics bases as well as staging areas to launch attacks.
Boko Haram is a terrorist group fighting for the establishment of an Islamic state in Nigeria. Also, the group is against the westernization of Nigerian society.
