The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) staging area and the terrorists’ vehicle workshop on the outskirts of Tumbun Rego in Northern Borno.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the Nigerian Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information, announced this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

He said that the operation was conducted after NAF aircraft tracked some BHT vehicles from Kareto to a location 3Km Southwest of Tumbun Rego, where the BHTs had carefully concealed their vehicles, fuel storage facility and equipment under trees and vegetation.

“Accordingly, the ATF attacked the location in a massive air raid involving multiple aircraft in successive waves of strikes.”

He said the air raid led to the destruction of some BHT vehicles and their fuel storage facility, which was seen engulfed in flames.

The spokesman added that several of the insurgents were also neutralised as a result of the strikes. (NAN)
