Nigerian Air Force (NAF) yesterday bombarded Boko Haram terrorists holding a meeting inside Sambisa forest.
Air Commodore, Olatokunbo Adesanya, Director of Public Relations and Information, said this in a statement on Saturday.
He noted that fighter jets conducted an air interdiction mission on a large structure in Talala, a location in Sambisa occupied by Boko Haram.
“Intelligence reports from NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance platforms as well as Human Intelligence had revealed that a sizeable number of BHTs were holding a meeting in the blue-roofed building”, Adesanya said.
“Consequently, a NAF fighter aircraft was scrambled to attack the building.
“Subsequent Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) revealed that the building and its occupants were neutralized as a result of the air strike”.
NAF had initiated Operation RUWAN WUTA II, on 23 October 2017, to further decimate the ability of the sect to freely operate with a view to giving advantage to ground troops.
