Based on intelligence reports recently, the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) Training Camp, along with a suspected ammunition depot, and neutralized several terrorists at Nuwar in the Bama area of Borno State.

Military spokesperson, Major General John Enenche said this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja that execution destroyed the cluster of huts and other structures in the settlement were being used to conduct combat training for the terrorists on a regular basis.

Spokesperson added that the Air Task Force, after conducting series of confirmatory aerial surveillance missions, dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) helicopter gunships for a night air raid on the location.

He added that the helicopters scored devastating hits in the target area which led to the neutralization of several BHTs as well as the destruction of some of their structures, including the terrorists’ armoury, where multiple mini explosions were observed amidst the raging fire.

Enenche emphasized that several other terrorists were taken out in follow-on attacks by the helicopter gunships.

"The Armed Forces of Nigeria, operating in concert with other security agencies and stakeholders, will sustain the offensive against the enemies of our Great Nation" he said.

He said, the military will not relent until peace and normalcy are restored not only in the North East but also in every other troubled region of our beloved Country.
