Nigerian Airforce Destroys Boko Haram Sambisa Logistics Base

predator-firing-missile4The Nigeria air force’s Unmanned combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has “destroyed a logistics base” of Boko Haram insurgents, Ayodele Famuyiwa, spokesman of the air force, said on Tuesday.

According to him, “the UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa forest”. “At the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs and vehicles.

The multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location, as can be seen from the enclosed video of the UAV strike, strongly suggests that it may be either an ammunition/fuel storage or weapons/technical workshop,”

Famuyiwa said. “This strike is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram Sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops.”
