Air Task Force kills scores of Boko Haram terrorists, destroys guntrucks at Bula Korege, Borno

By Lawrence Audu

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has killed scores of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) and immobilized one of their gun trucks at Bula Korege, a terrorists’ logistics distribution centre and meeting point, on the fringes of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

This feat according to the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations Major General John Enenche was achieved via air strikes executed on 17 June 2020 as part of missions being conducted under the subsidiary Operation LONG REACH after a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft spotted a large number of BHT fighters and a gun truck within the settlement.

Consequently, the Air Task Force scrambled its fighter jets to attack the location.

”Upon arrival overhead the settlement, the NAF jets engaged the target area, taking out some structures and neutralizing some of the terrorists.

”The gun truck, while retreating from the location due to the strong firepower from the air, began engaging the attack aircraft with its anti-aircraft gun.

”However, the jets, after conducting evasive maneuvres, tracked the vehicle and subsequently immobilized it a few kilometres outside the village.

”The occupants of the truck, who attempted to flee, were mopped-up in follow-on attacks by the fighter jets.” He said.
