300 Boko Haram terrorists killed as Nigerian Air Force intensifies aerial bombings

Picture2

The Nigerian Air Force on Tuesday said it killed about 300 Boko Haram members during a recent aerial bombardments of terrorist locations in the North-East of Nigeria.

The Director of Public Relations and Information for the Air Force, Ayodele Famuyiwa, said in a statement emailed to PREMIUM TIMES that the killing of the terrorists recorded  “another major success in the on-going counter-insurgency and counter terrorism operations against the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) sect in the North East.”

Mr. Famuyiwa said, “The current phase of intensified air operations over Northern Borno paid-off on the night of 19 August 2016 when the NAF, during an air attack, killed about 300 BHTs who had gathered to hold a meeting at a location between Malam Fatori and own troops location at Kangarwa.

“Prior to this fateful day the NAF, on 16 August 2016, had commenced series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions to corroborate human intelligence that key BHT commanders gather at the said location to hold meeting at night.

“The objective of the on-going operation, as usual, is to degrade the capability of the insurgents, particularly those who have fled to the northern part of Borno.”

The army also reported Tuesday that it repelled attack on the location of its troops near Sambisa forest.

“Troops on Operation LAFIYA DOLE stationed at Darul Jamel, on the fringes of Sambisa forest, northern parts of Borno State, yesterday evening successfully repelled an attempted attack on their location by remnants of Boko Haram terrorists,” the spokesperson for the army, Sani Usman, a colonel, said in a statement.

“The terrorists attempted to storm the troops location at about 10.00pm, but paid dearly as the troops killed several of them including two senior commanders that led the attack.

“The troops recovered one Light Machine Gun (LMG) with Registration number 56M-1101229, 1 AK-47 Rifle Magazine, Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Bomb and 1 top cover of an AK-47 Rifle. Other items recovered include 395 Rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition and 15 rounds of 5.5mm by .45 ammunition.

“Prior to the attack, the troops of the same unit on routine patrol earlier, had cleared an ambush staged by elements of the suspected remnants of the terrorists desperate for food near Banki Junction.

“It is equally believed that the attack and ambush might not be unconnected to the fact that the terrorists were desperately targeting over 890 rescued herdsmen with their 5000 livestock being held captives by terrorists along Nigerian borders with Cameroon.”

    • Epsilon_Delta

      Keep waiting for their end, you’ll wait forever!
      They are in power!

      • Peter_Edo

        you na boko haram?

    • Otile

      Don’t thank them for anything. There is no such thing as fighting corruption in Sambisa forest. Those expansive bombs are wasted in the forest, and you know it.

  • Simeon Nigel

    This aerial bombardment video or picture was similar to that shown in 2014 yr and which claimed to have killed Abubakar Shakeu, the leader of Boko Haram. The question here is that why should this video be display; in my opinion, Nigeria Air force is ‘fooling’ Nigeria people for claiming this same aerial air strikes as if of the used environment. If the Nigeria federal government is actually very serious to getting rids of these evil and human blood suckers BK out of Sambisa forest, they would have been history by now.

    • Epsilon_Delta

      The grainy bombing part is total fake with superimposed explosions. Compare that with real bombing videos!

      • SBA

        Na you sabi. Nobody is begging you to believe. Kudos to the Nigerian Airforce.

    • Peter_Edo

      Dullard, raise the resolution of the video to 480p and look at the right top side and you will clearly see the date (time-stamp) digitally imposed in the video. it shows clearly 19/08/16 as date and 19:16 (7:16 pm) as time of recording.

    • Otile

      You are not winning anything. All you are doing is killing Kanuri people whose homes happen to be in Sambisa forest in the name of fighting corruption in the forest.

  • truth is bitter

    The nomenclature and acronym used for Boko haram by Premium Times is wrong. They are Boko Haram Islamist Terrorist (BHIT) sect and not Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) sect as Premium Times has presented here. This seemingly subtle distortion (expunging the word “Islamist”) has the potential to obscure the obvious…and I perceive that it is DELIBERATE. We must not allow this to happen. The basis for their animalistic ideology is the brand of Islam they believe in. And this is evident in their MO……………While then will Editors of PT pretend that they don’t know this simple fact? Nonsense!

      Till date u do not seem to know that Premium Times was set up by the CIA arm of the Jihadist Islamic Sect–in West African which also cloned Bin Laden–for the Arabs in Afghanistan abi? Have u asked yourself why Premium Times, established a Luciferic Hausa media section for the Fulanis from Mali where Buhari hails from’? And for the Nationals of Sudan–Senegal and Chad resident in Nigeria with our National ID CARDS?. If not why should an illegal alien from Niger Republic resident in the south west of Yorubas land-, have a Nigerian arrested for naming his dog after Alhaji Bingo Buhari? Can an illegal Nigerian Economic Migrant, who is supposed to be in hiding, in a church in London, Have a British National arrested for naming his dog after Queen Elizabeth? Sadly that was exactly what happened in Nigeria–and Buhari has the guy who named his dog after Bingo Buhari, under lock and key in jail–Happily like in Biblical Times, we prayed for change ati a new leader and God in His Mercy gave us a Monster—-in the person of Bingo Buhari—to replace the gentle meek soul of Jonathan-Separation is the answer regardless—not the misrule of the Fulanis and Yorubas-ati their Ibo surrogates in APC singing a song of six pence–for Mbaka-animals

  • separation is the answer

    The boko haram war can never be won from the Air—————————such bombardment are often undertaken by the Armed Forces to prepare grounds for the ground Forces to move intothe Areas occupied by Boko haram——————Sadly that is not the case in this cowardly act by our soldiers in Nigeria—The story only goes to show how powerful the Fulani boko haram Jihadist fighters are——If the Armed Forces now have to use their Superior air power to bomb Fulani Boko haram fighters in Nigeria then we are in real danger!!!!!!!!! ——–For we now seem to be bombing humans into oblivion just for the fun of it—When we say 300 who did the counting–from the air? The question I have often asked is—was it Buhari that bought the weapons being used by the Air—force—to lie to us that they killed 300 Fulani Tuaregs from Mali———–or Jonathan———–Till date we are yet to be told the number of weapons purchased by Buhari——–Latest news is that Buhari intends to buy weapons from Russia—-over which Obama speedily dispatched John Kerry to come and warn Buhari to desist from such acts.–or they sack——him—also————–Aware it was the USA that removed Jonathan and Imposed monsters like Buhari on us–Happily they now know they made a mistake–based on the lies told them by thieves like Obj–Soyinka–Falana—the Sultan of Sokoto and emir of Kano—–among other Fulni Emirs ati Yoruba Obas—who supported the Fulanis——————So far can Buhari is yet to tell us if the amount said to have been stolen by Dasuki equals that of Abacha whom he served with all his Fulani heart————-Yesterday they told us the boko haram war was over—-now they sing a different song–Again-If 300 Boko haram Fulani fighters can be killed at a go—————-then it means the Fulani contrived Jihadist war against the Kanuris, North Central and the entire southern part of Nigeria, is just starting-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!–separation is the answer–for those who have ears to listen to the voice of wisdom–let them do so quickly –For the fly wey no hear word———————-nahim dey fellow dead body go inside——————————-???????????????????????????????????????????———-grave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Na so our Papa dem (tolded) us–separation is the answer-period–

    • DrOye

      Lol, election is more than a year now but you’re still pained. Read my lips….your HERO is gone with the wind and NEVER AGAIN will Nigeria see so much cluelessness!

      • separation is the answer

        Hail Hitler for how much——u enslave yr dirty conscience—for the Fulnis killing Yorubas and Ibos up north—-via the Fulni cowhands-? Name the achievements of Buhari or just buzz off–the elections as u said are over and done with—time for us to see the result of his fake promises—-put in motion for all to see—–Sadly the policies of Buhari are like asking——————a starving group of IDPs to eat less food—daily in Nigeria–Nigerians are now selling their kids—and properties at give away prices—

  • Aminu Mahmoud

    Bravo our gallant troops keep on doing the great job of wiping terrorists anywhere in the country no negotiation with them until completely wiped off.

    • Otile

      Bravo nothing. You get your own thrill from Buhari fighters killing Kanuri people whose home is Sambisa forest. Mind you these people have lived in the forest all their lives, and you are now trying to smoke them out. Wiping out Boko Haram corruption in the forest my foot.

  • Galantman

    What I watched really warmth my heart and give me 100 % confidence in the ability of our Air Force to deal with ALL terrorists right from the north to the south south. Modern warfare entails degrading the enemy with air power, then send ground troops to finish them off. A clear warming to all those miscriants and paid fools threatening to face the federal might.

    • front man

      Yes oooo I now believed our gallant soldiers can face terrorists

    • Otile

      Be honest. What did you get out of that_stupid fussy image you watched from the confused air force? Did that spider-like slow movement make any sense to you? Wallahi.

      • Galantman

        That’s why u are called bloody civilians. Both ur body,soul and eyes are not trained. To ur eyes it’s fussy, but to be experts it’s crystal clear.

        • Otile

          Can you in good conscience describe anything meaning you saw in that fussy image? The same image has been shown us before yet nobody learned anything from it. Aboki Usman’s propaganda is always in poor taste.

  • front man

    Good news

    • Otile

      Good news that sojajin Najeriya is throwing bombs at people living their lives in the forest of Sambisa? After the bombs what else?

  • Freedom Bini

    Killing Killing every day. Wouldn’t Government ask where are all these bees coming from? Killing will not solve the Problem.These Boko Haram had lived among us for years and but over night took up arms? Certainly not over night.Nigerian Government do not know that other person’s live matters.

  • Abraham

    First the time in Years, i’m beginning to restore my confidence in the NAF, well done guys. We are proud of you :))

    • Otile

      Get real boy, you are hoping against hope. Under Imam Mohamed Buhari there is no hope for Nigeria. If after watching this useless fussy cartoon cooked up by sojajin Najeriya you begin to rejoice, I am sorry for you.

  • vagabonds in power

    AGAIN, I REPEAT, Boko haram war can never be won from the Air—————————such bombardment of innocent Kanuris instead of Boko Haram Fulani Fighters———should have been undertaken by the Air Force to prepare grounds for an an invasion by Nigerian troops to the suspected Boko haram enclaves–Stayin up in the air to bomb boko haram Fulni fighters—with no armoured tanks or an airforce in a cowardly acts——————–Sadly that is not the case in this luciferic act by our soldiers in Nigeria—The story only goes to show how powerful the Fulani boko haram Jihadist fighters are–till date-period—If the Armed Forces now have to use their Superior air power to bomb Fulani Boko haram fighters in Nigeria then we are in real danger!!!!!!!!! ——–For we now seem to be bombing humans into oblivion just for the fun of it-and not because we yearn to win the war—
