Operations strengthened this past weekend with aerial patrols over the Sambisa Forest in a renewed effort to combat terrorists who might have escaped the latest onslaught against the insurgents from regrouping.

Elsewhere, NAF has deployed ISR platforms for surveillance activities over Kafanchan, Katab, Samaru and Zonkwa, among other troubled areas in southern part of Kaduna State, including the Kaduna metropolis.
