Military hit terrorists’ targets, kill scores in Lake Chad, Sambisa forest

The Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole has hit Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists’ hideouts and killed several fighters in the Lake Chad, and Sambisa forest in Borno.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, said this in a statement on Friday.

The strikes were launched under a subsidiary operation tagged ‘’Operation Hail Storm’’.

One of the targets was located at Bula Sabo on the fringes of the Sambisa forest, identified as a settlement used as dwelling place by some terrorist commanders.

Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships meted devastating hits on the target buildings, including a logistics facility.

“In the same vein, Dole, which is located in the Yale-Kokiwa axis near Dikwa, was targeted because the settlement was being used by the terrorists as a venue to plan and launch attacks against locations in the surrounding areas.”

Enenche added that the NAF attack aircraft similarly engaged the location, inflicting heavy damage on the insurgents’ structures and neutralising several fighters.
