Nigerian Military Begins Bombardment Of Boko Haram Bunkers In Sambisa Forest


In a bid to ending insurgency in the country, the Nigerian mili­tary has carried out several bombings and air strike missions in Sambisa Forest. The strike missions came after several weeks of tactical reconnaissance by the reconnaissance/sur­veillance aircraft. The air strikes carried out by Ni­geria Air Force jets as well as attack helicopters has resulted in the degradation of the terrorists capabilities and destruction of some of their strongholds.

Intelligence reports re­vealed that as aftermath of the strike missions, the terrorists have been con­fined and their capabilities greatly reduced, thereby restricting their nefarious activities to smallscale at­tacks and suicide bomb­ings. The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, in statement signed on his behalf by the Director of Public Rela­tions and Information, Air Commodore Dele Alonge assured all Nigerians that the air efforts would be sustained until Boko Ha­ram activities become a thing of the past. He further stated that the Nigerian Air Force with the of support of the citizenry is “willing, able and ready to meet up with current and future security challenges of the nation.”
