A statement on Saturday by Adesanya said the terrorists were poised to interfere with ongoing operations in the Sambisa general area.

He said, “A NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform had sighted several BHTs on vehicles and gun trucks, which were carefully concealed in a forested area. “

He explained that, “three NAF fighter aircraft were detailed to provide Close Air Support to own surface forces, which also engaged the insurgents.”

“The fighter aircraft launched a bomb attack on the insurgents’ defensive positions while another wave of bomb attacks was launched at the insurgents’ gun trucks and vehicles, causing one of them to go up in flames.

“Thereafter, one of the aircraft strafed a fleeing BHTs vehicle with rockets, destroying the gun truck in the process.

“The NAF aircraft’s mission destroyed not only the vehicles but also the workshop previously used by the insurgents to repair and retrofit their vehicles and equipment,” the NAF statement said.
