Abuja - Nigeria Air Force (NAF) has reported successful airstrikes that destroyed the Boko Haram sect’s vehicle workshops, fuel and ammunition dumps all within the Sambisa forest.
Air Commodore Dele Alonge, Director of Public Relations and Information at NAF, said this was part of a renewed drive to further degrade the terror group’s assets.
He said the feat by the Nigerian Air Force came as a result of a painstaking Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) efforts by the NAF’s Unmanned Aerial vehicle (UAV) and ATR-42 platforms.
