The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists, BHTs, logistics facility at Gujeri in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno.

The NAF said the operation was executed through the Air Task Force, ATF, of Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information made this known in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

He explained that this was achieved in night-time air strikes executed on Dec.31 2019, pursuant to series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, ISR, missions.
