WorldStage Newsonline-- The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has confirmed that it conducted air interdiction on a Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) settlement in Njimia on 10 September 2017, the fourth day of the ongoing intensive bombardment of their hideouts in the Sambisa general area.

A statement by Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, Director of Public Relations and Information, NAF said “NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms had previously confirmed that several structures used by the terrorists as meeting points were in the location. The air interdiction was conducted by the Alpha Jet and F-7Ni aircraft, which took turns to attack the location with bombs. Subsequent Battle Damage Assessment showed that the targeted BHT structures were destroyed as a result of the attacks.

“The attacks were designed to further break the will and capability of the BHTs to regroup against own surface forces.”
