Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha Jets have successfully carried out airstrikes and destroyed Boko Haram’s vehicle workshops, fuel and ammunition dumps – all within Sambisa Forest, the terrorists’ remaining stronghold in Borno State.

“This feat by the Nigerian Air Force came as a result of a painstaking Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) efforts by the NAF’s Unmanned Aerial vehicle (UAV) and ATR-42 platforms,” NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, said this afternoon.

“In view of the above, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar wishes to assure  all Nigerians that with these successful strikes on the insurgents, their capabilities have been further degraded to pave the way for the final onslaught by the land forces to meet the Commander-in-Chief, President Mohammadu Buhari’s directives to bring insurgency in the North-East to an end,” Alonge added in a statement issed in Abuja.
