The Nigerian Air Force has said that its Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) staging area and vehicle workshop on the outskirts of Tumbun Rego in Northern Borno State.
A statement by the director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola said the operation, which took place on November 15, 2018, was conducted after NAF aircraft tracked some BHT vehicles from Kareto to a location 3km Southwest of Tumbun Rego.
He said the Boko Haram Terrorists had carefully concealed their vehicles, fuel storage facility and equipment under trees and vegetation.
“Accordingly, the ATF attacked the location in a massive air raid involving multiple aircraft in successive waves of strikes leading to the destruction of some BHT vehicles and their fuel storage facility, which was seen engulfed in flames,” he said.
He further stated that several terrorists were also neutralized as a result of the strikes.
