The Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed another Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs) logistics facility and neutralised fighters at Yamud along the Gulumba Gana-Kumshe axis of Borno State.
The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche said the operation was executed on August 11, 2020, sequel to credible intelligence reports indicating that the settlement was one of the locations where the terrorists store their logistics and assemble to launch attacks.
He said 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,” he said.
