Nigerian Air Force announces destruction of Boko Haram logistics base

NAF Jet used to illustrate the story

The Nigerian Air Force has announced that it successfully destroyed a logistics base concealed by fleeing Boko Haram Terrorists in Sambisa forest.

“Two fleeing terrorists were tracked by NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft to the concealed location where they had gone to retrieve some items before fighter aircraft were called-in for strike,” Air Force spokesperson, Ayodele Famuyiwa, said in a statement.

He said the “coordinated attack was carried out by a formation of two Alpha Jet and an F-7Ni fighter aircraft while the ISR aircraft remained overhead the target location to guide the attacking aircraft as well as provide battle damage assessment.

“The huge inferno generated by the attack suggests that the target location was either a fuel or ammunition dump as can be seen from the declassified footage of the air strike.

“The latest air strike is another major feat in the renewed air effort by the NAF to neutralise the fleeing terrorists as well as decimate their capability to regroup for attack on own surface forces and people within the nearby communities.”

    What if there were innocent civilians like women and children in that location,would they have been incinerated? why did they not send in strike force to see if they could capture people or recover some materials that could be useful ,this strike was a poor tactical move
