The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says its air interdiction operation of the operation Green Sweep, has successfully destroyed Boko Haram Terrorists’ logistics base at Kusuma in Northern Borno.
A statement by the director of public relations and information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said the air strikes were conducted following credible intelligence reports indicating that the BHTs had resumed using the previously abandoned settlement and established a Logistics Base to support their operations in the fringes of Lake Chad.
He added that extensive Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions later identified two compounds within the village that were the main logistics hubs in the town.
“Consequently, the ATF dispatched two Alpha Jet aircraft to attack the settlement, recording direct hits on the target buildings and facilities with huge balls of fires seen,” he said
He restated that the NAF in collaboration with surface forces would sustain the tempo of operations with a view to destroying all remnants of the terrorists in Borno State.
