Alpha jet destroys Boko Haram camp in Borno —NAF


The Nigerian Air Force says its Operation Lafiya Dole has decimated a Boko Haram camp and neutralised some of their fighters at a settlement called Arboko in Borno State.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

The NAF spokesperson said the operation of the Air Task Force was carried out on Monday.

Daramola explained that the Alpha jet destroyed the insurgent’s camp while providing close air support to troops of 82 Brigade, Nigerian Army.

“The operation was conducted on February 18, while a Nigerian Air Force Alpha Jet and an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance platform were providing close air support to troops of 82 Brigade, Nigerian Army.

“In the course of the operation, the ISR aircraft spotted a group of BHT fighters within Arboko village and vectored the Alpha Jet to engage their camp with rocket fire, thereby degrading the terrorists’ structures and neutralising some of their fighters,” he said.

The spokesman said that NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, would sustain its efforts to completely destroy all remnants of the terrorists in the North East.
