The Nigerian Air Force says it has destroyed Boko Haram’s camp at Alafa ‘C’ in Sambisa Forest, Borno State.

According to a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the action followed sustained onslaught by the Operation Decisive Edge of the Force against the terrorists.

According to the statement, the attack was carried out based on confirmatory Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions which established that several compounds in the settlement were being used by the terrorists to house and train their fighters.

Daramola said, the bomb strikes and rocket salvos from the ATF’s fighter jets hit the designated compounds, obliterating most of the structures and neutralizing some of the BHT occupants.

He further explained that the Force “operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its air campaign against the terrorists’ hideouts to shape the battlespace for the effective conduct of further ground and air operations.”
