Metro Nigerian Air Force Drops Bombs, Rockets On Boko Haram Terrorists In Sambisa



The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has confirmed that it has neutralized hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists in the Sambisa forest. A NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (iSR) platform had earlier sighted the terrorists hidden under some trees.

A statement by Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, Director of Public Relations and Information, said that a combination of NAF fighter aircraft namely the F7-Ni, Alpha Jet and L-39 ZA aircraft was detailed to carry out air interdiction on the Boko Haram terrorist's gathering.

The Alpha Jet aircraft acquired and attacked the target with bombs, neutralising many of the BHTs. Thereafter, the F-Ni aircraft immediately conducted a bomb attack, which resulted in the death of more BHTs. The L-39ZA aircraft then followed through by strafing fleeing terrorists with rockets, killing most of them in the process.
