Nigerian Air Force Jets Destroy Terrorists Base In Sambisa

The Nigerian Air Force has successfully destroyed a logistics base concealed by fleeing Boko haram terrorists  in Sambisa forest. Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft tracked two fleeing terrorists to the concealed location, where they had gone to retrieve some items before fighter aircrafts were called-in for strike. The coordinated attack was carried out by a formation of two Alpha jets and an F-7ni fighter aircraft, while the ISR aircraft remained overhead the target location to guide the attacking aircraft as well as provide battle damage assessment. The huge inferno generated by the attack suggests that the target location was either a fuel or ammunition dump.   Air Force Spokesman, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said in a statement that the latest air strike is another major feat in the renewed air effort by the Air Force to eliminate the fleeing terrorists as well as decimate their capability to regroup for attack on Nigeria’s ground troops and people within the nearby communities
