The Military Spokesperson, Major General John Enenche said, the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed some Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) vehicles and eliminated several of their fighters along the Jakana axis of Borno State.
Enenche disclosed this on Friday in a statement in Abuja.
He said, this was achieved through air strikes executed on 13 January 2021.
He added that after intelligence reports revealed that the Boko Haram Terrorists were conducting another logistics movement through the Jakana-Mainok axis of the State, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft dispatched to the area subsequently spotted the BHTs’ vehicles at a location South of Jakana.
"The Air Task Force scrambled NAF helicopter gunships to engage the convoy in successive waves of attack, delivering accurate hits in the target area which resulted in the destruction of two Boko Haram Terrorists vehicles" he said.
He stressed that "Several of the terrorists were also eliminated while one of the logistics vehicles was seen overturned".
