Boko Haram Strongholds in Sambisa Bombed by Nigerian Air Force



Strongholds of the Boko Haram terrorist group in Sambisa Forest are under siege from the Nigerian Air Force.
The Nigerian Military, in its resolution to incapacitate and further degrade the fighting spirit of Boko Haram Terrorist Group, had carried out several bombings and air strike missions in the forest, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Air Force, Dele Alonge, has said.

He said the strike missions came after several weeks of tactical reconnaissance by the reconnaissance/ surveillance aircraft.
“Intelligence report revealed that as aftermath of the strike missions, the terrorists have been confined and their capabilities greatly reduced, thereby restricting their nefarious activities to small scale attacks and suicide bombings.
“The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar assures all Nigerians that the air efforts would be sustained until the Boko Haram Activities becomes a thing of the past. He further stated that, the Nigerian Air Force with their support is Willing, Able and Ready to meet up with current and future security challenges of the nation.”
The air strikes carried out by F-7NI and Alpha Jet fighter aircraft, as well as attack helicopters has resulted in the degradation of the terrorists capabilities and destruction of some of their strong holds, the spokesperson said.
