Nigerian Air Force hits Boko Haram in Sambisa forest


As part of efforts to ensure that the insurgents are not allowed to recapture any territory in the country, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Saturday said it has carried out more air strikes on the Boko Haram terrorists in Sambisa forest.

A statement complemented with video by the Director of Public Relations and Information of the NAF, Olatokunbo Adesanya, noted that in the closing stages of the Operation Ruwan Wuta II, the NAF air interdiction were focused on the hideouts of the terrorists in Sambisa.

According to the Air Force, Battle Damage Assessment showed that the building housing the terrorists and the terrorists were neutralised after the bombardment of the area by the fighter jets.

The NAF initiated Operation RUWAN WUTA II, on 23 October 2017, to further decimate the ability of the insurgents to freely operate with a view to giving advantage to the forces and thereby frustrate their efforts to recapture any Nigerian territory.
