Farmers murder: NAF kills insurgents in Sambisa Forest —Official 

Adelani Adepegba, Abuja 

The Nigerian Air Force jets have reportedly killed several insurgents and also bombed the dwellings of their leaders at two settlements in Borno State.

The Defence headquarters said the air raids were undertaken on Monday after credible intelligence reports and series of aerial surveillance missions indicated that “some of the Boko Haram terrorists that carried out recent attacks against innocent civilians were harboured in makeshift structures under the dense vegetation of the Sambisa Forest while others were tracked to the settlement East of Yale.”

About 43 farmers were killed by the insurgents at Zabarmari community, Borno State, on Saturday.

Some of the victims were butchered and beheaded while about 10 women were reportedly abducted by the terrorists.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, in a statement on Tuesday, said the air interdiction missions being conducted as part of subsidiary Operation Wutar Tabki 2, the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole, destroyed some Boko Haram dwellings in separate air strikes executed in the Sambisa Forest area as well as at a settlement about 1.7 Km East of Yale, both in Borno State.

“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched Nigerian Air Force fighter jets and helicopter gunships to attack the two locations.

“The attack aircraft, while taking turns to engage the targets, delivered lethal bomb and rocket strikes, resulting in the destruction of some of the structures as well as the killing of several terrorists.”
