The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has inflicted heavy casualties on Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.

The Air Task Force has also taken out their hideouts in Alagarno, including a compound housing some high-value BHT leaders.

The compound, concealed under thick vegetation and located 2.3Km North East of KAFA, was being used by the terrorists to coordinate their nefarious activities.

A statement by Major General John Enenche the Defence Media Operations Coordinator said the destruction of the locations was achieved through multiple air strikes executed on 6 January 2021.

He said the ATF dispatched appropriate force packages of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and attack helicopters to engage the target areas in day and night raids.

The BHTs were spotted under the dense vegetation of the locations and the NAF attack aircraft  took turns in engaging the targets, neutralizing several of them.
