The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) yesterday announced the cutting off of Boko Haram supply routes. The announcement came following the interception, on Wednesday, of over 4,000 drums and jerry cans of petroleum products and other smuggled items.
“The items, suspected to be supplies meant for BHT, were confiscated from the smugglers in Pepe, Dashin-Hausa, Belel Bilachi, and Konkul villages located along the Nigeria-Cameroon Borders,” NAF Director Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, said in a statement issued yesterday evening.
He disclosed that NAF was able to achieve the feat through its air patrol activities, covering both land and water, along the Nigeria-Cameroon boarders. “NAF has continued to identify and destroy BHT camps and resupplies by employing surveillance and combat aircraft. Intelligence gathered revealed that these efforts have greatly strained the supply efforts of the BHT,” Air Commodore Dele Alonge added.
