The Nigerian military has succeeded in destroying terrorists’ hideouts in five communities – Baga, Gwoza, Sambisa, Bama and Pulka – in the North Eastern Nigeria, PRNigeria has said.
The media outlet, which distributes press releases for security agencies in Nigeria, released a video showing an aerial bombardment of a location.
PRNigeria said the attack occurred during an operation involving the Air Force and some ground troops.
In the two-minute video, people could be seen scampering within a settlement while houses were being razed down from the airstrikes.
Also, people were seen running in-between trees and homes in search for safety.
The Nigerian military has raised its momentum against the Boko Haram sect in the last two weeks.
On Monday, in a statement, the Defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, said the military’s six-week operation have been successful.
Mr. Olukolade also noted that the cordon and search operation have revealed that many of the terrorists disguise as women to evade arrest.
