Military airstrike kills scores of terrorists in Borno

Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole on Tuesday eliminated scores of Boko Haram terrorists and destroyed three of the terrorists’ gun trucks in an air raid at Mainok in Borno, Defence Headquarters says.

Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Enenche said the air operation was executed sequel to intelligence reports which indicated that the terrorists were traversing the Jakana-Mainok axis of the state in several gun trucks.

He said the Air Task Force scrambled the Nigerian Air Force helicopter gunships to engage the convoy of the terrorists’ gun trucks and logistics vehicles.

He said the helicopters delivered accurate hits in the target area, resulting in the destruction of three of the vehicles, some of which were seen engulfed in flames.

“Several of the terrorists were also eliminated in the process,” he said. (NAN)
