Air Force destroys Boko Haram logistics base

03 February 2016, 07:45Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base allegedly used by the Boko Haram terrorists.

Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information Group, Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, the drone was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of terrorists  at Garin Moloma.

The place is about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest, a lair of the terrorists.

"At the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs (Boko Haram terrorists) and vehicles," Famuyiwa said.

He added that the multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location, as seen from the enclosed video of the drone strike, strongly suggested it might be either an ammunition and fuel storage or weapons and technical workshop.

Famuyiwa said the strike is a major setback for the Boko Haram sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops.
