In a statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Public Relations and Information of the Air Force said on Tuesday, Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base used by members of the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) group.
According to him, the UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of BHTs at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest.
The NAF spokesperson added that 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.
“This strike is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram Sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops,” Famuyiwa said.
