Air Force destroys another Boko Haram camp in Borno

31 August 2016, 10:06

Abuja - The Nigerian Air Force has reported the destruction of a new Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) camp located between Malam Fatori and Kangarwa in Northern Borno State.

The new camp is about 4-6 km away from the BHT location attacked earlier on 20 August 2016 by NAF Mi-17 helicopter within the same vicinity in a similar night operation that led to the death of about 300 insurgents.

The post-strike Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) mission had revealed that surviving BHTs converged at the new location, said Ayodele Famuyiwa, Air Force spokesperson.

“The air assault is therefore expected to further degrade the capability of the insurgents while fostering the creation of the necessary enablement for own ground troops to operate,” he added.

He said the general area around Malam Fatori and Kangarwa was infested with terrorists hence the need to clear the remnants of them in the area.

Meanwhile, Famuyiwa said NAF Alpha Jets helped to repel an attack by insurgents on troops of 153 Battalion who were on fighting patrol at Ala Lumshe also in Borno.

The troops, he said, had come under attack from BHTs about 4 km south of Marte when the Alpha Jets were called-in to dislodge the insurgents.
