A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA) on Monday successfully destroyed an emerging Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) vehicle workshop in the Sambisa general area.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya disclosed this in a statement issued on Wednesday.

He said: “A NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance platform had previously discovered that BHT vehicles were parked in the location. Consequently, a NAF RPA was detailed to conduct armed reconnaissance in search of BHT vehicles and terrorists around the location, which was apparently being used as a vehicle workshop.

“The RPA discovered that BHT motorcycles and vehicles, including a BHT Commander’s vehicle were parked in the targeted area. Additionally, several terrorists were seen moving intermittently within the targeted area.

“The subsequent air strike by the NAF RPA resulted in the immediate destruction of the vehicles in the targeted location, killing all the BHTs inside it, as no survivors were seen scampering from the location after impact.”
