Boko Haram: Many Killed As Air Force Jet Attacks Terrorists’ Hideout In Borno

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has decimated a Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHT) hideout and neutralized several terrorists at Bogum in Northern Borno State.

This was confirmed to DAILY POST by Ibikunle Daramola, Air Commodore, and Director of Public Relations and Information, in a statement on Monday.

According to him, “the attack was carried out on Sunday, 14 October 2018, after intelligence reports indicated significant BHT activities within the settlement.

“The ATF scrambled two Mi-35 Helicopter Gunships to engage and destroy the identified BHT positions in the village.

“Overhead the target, the concentration areas of the BHTs were attacked in successive waves by the helicopters with direct hits recorded on the targets, leading to the neutralization of several BHTs.

“The few surviving BHTs were tracked and mopped up in subsequent follow on attacks.


“The NAF, working in concert with surface forces, will sustain the tempo of operations with a view to destroying all remnants of the terrorists on the fringes of Lake Chad and other areas in Northern Borno.”
