Troops of Nigerian Air force have destroyed new Boko Haram settlement where weapons and logistics are stored at Mana Waji village of Borno State, killing scores of the terrorists in massive air interdiction missions on Friday

This was contained in a statement issued by the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, defence headquarters, Major General John Enenche on Saturday.

“The air strikes, which were executed employing a force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, were carried out after series of aerial surveillance missions revealed that the new settlement was being used to store their weapons and logistics items and as well as plan and stage attacks. On sighting the NAF aircraft, the insurgents were seen fleeing the location”, he said.

According to him, on sighting the NAF aircraft, the insurgents were seen fleeing the location.

“Consequently, in a preemptive move, the NAF attack aircraft engaged the new location in successive passes, leading to the destruction of some of the structures and logistics stores.

“Several insurgents were also neutralised in the process,” he said.
