VIDEO: Nigeria Air Force drone destroys Boko Haram’s logistics base

The Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base used by members of the Boko Haram terrorist group, the force said in a statement Wednesday.

The UAV, according to the spokesperson for the Air Force, Ayodele Famuyiwa, was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission when it came across the gathering of Boko Haram insurgents at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest.

Mr. Famuyiwa, a Group Captain, said at the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of terrorists 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,” the statement 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.”
