The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, on 15 June 2018, successfully neutralised some Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) at Parisu and Takwala, both in Borno State.
This was contained in a statement signed by the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, (DOPRI) Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, yesterday.
He said the mission followed the discovery, by NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, of activities of BHTs in the two locations consequently, the ATF detailed two NAF Alpha Jet, aircraft, armed with rockets and cannons, to interdict the locations.
Adesanya also said overhead the objective, the NAF fighter aircraft acquired and attacked the objectives with rockets and cannons adding that at the end of the mission, it was observed that the attack platforms successfully engaged the remnants of the terrorists hibernating within the settlements and consequently neutralised them.
“The NAF will continue to deploy its platforms to conduct intensive ISR missions aimed at discovering the locations of possible remnants of BHTs in the entire Northeast,” the statement added.
