In a renewed offensive aimed at further eliminating remnants of Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province Terrorists (BHT/ISWAP) in the Northeast of Nigeria, the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has launched Operation GREEN SWEEP 3 which targets some identified terrorists’ positions in Borno State.
According to the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, “The 3 Alpha Jets dispatched by the ATF engaged the location in multiple passes, recording accurate hits on the target area. The structures housing the Command Centre were completely destroyed by the strikes while several of the terrorists were neutralized. The few surviving terrorists, who were seen attempting to flee the area, were taken out by follow on attacks.
“The NAF, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its operations against the terrorists in the Northeast.
