The Defense Headquarters said Operation Lafiya Dole ‘s Air Task Force (ATF) demolished the structures of Boko Haram at Warshale in Borno State.
The Director, Defense Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, also announced in a statement on Monday that many Boko Haram fighters were killed in the airstrikes.
Enenche said after credible intelligence reports, the operation was executed on 27 June as part of a subsidiary Operation LONG REACH.
“Operation LAFIYA DOLE ‘s Air Task Force (ATF) has dealt yet another decisive blow to Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in Northeast Nigeria by destroying several of their structures and neutralizing their fighters at Warshale in the Northern part of Borno State.
“This was achieved through airstrikes carried out on 27 June 2020 as part of the subsidiary Operation LONG REACH after credible intelligence reports as well as days of air surveillance missions established that the settlement was being used as a staging area for launching attacks against the locations of friendly forces and surrounding civilian settlements.
“The Air Task Force has accordingly dispatched a strike package of fighter jets from the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) as well as an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft to engage in the area.
“The NAF jets scored devastating hits in their multiple waves of attacks resulting in the destruction of several structures in the settlement as well as the neutralization of some of the terrorists.
“The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, commends the ATF for their dedication and professionalism. The Defence Headquarters equally urges them to intensify the air offensive against the terrorists and all other criminal elements threatening the peace and security of our beloved country,” he said.
