The Nigerian Air Force says that its Battle Damage Assessment conducted after a recent strike on Boko Haram terrorists’ enclave showed that several leaders of the armed group and their followers were killed during the attacks.

The Air Force in a statement issued on Tuesday by its Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya also disclosed that a sizeable cache of weapons and equipment were destroyed.

“With the successful air interdiction, the Nigerian Air Force was able to frustrate yet another attempt by the remnants of the Boko Haram Terrorists to regroup in the Sambisa general area.

“At dawn on 28 April 2017, the Nigerian Air Force Component of Operation Lafiya Dole conducted an air interdiction mission on some remnants of the Boko Haram Terrorists in a village 3.42 km Northeast of Mangosum.

“On the previous day, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) had successfully provided air cover to troops of 27 Task Force Battalion thereby enabling them to repel an attack by the Boko Haram Terrorists.

“Subsequently, a NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft trailed the remnants of the insurgents that attacked the Battalion to a village near Mangosum, following which the NAF conducted the air interdiction mission with two Alpha Jet and one F-7Ni aircraft,” the Air Force said.
