The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base belonging to Boko Haram Terrorists BHTs).

“The UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of BHTs at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest,” NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said yesterday in a statement.

He said that as at the time of the drone attack, “the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs and vehicles. The multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location, as can be seen from the enclosed video of the UAV strike, strongly suggests that it may be either an ammunition/fuel storage or weapons/technical workshop.”

“This strike,” according to Famuyiwa, “is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram Sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops.”
