Nigerian Army Bombs ISWAP Terrorist Hideout In Lake Chad, Sambisa

Scores of Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists have been killed in Nigeria military raid on hideouts in Lake Chad and Sambisa forest in Borno, north-east, Nigeria.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, in a statement on Friday, said the air strikes by Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole were launched on Sept. 22 under a subsidiary operation tagged ‘’Operation Hail Storm’’.

Enenche said the air interdiction was aimed at taking out identified Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists in the North East.

He explained that one of the targets was located at Bula Sabo on the fringes of the Sambisa forest, identified as a settlement used as a dwelling place by some terrorist commanders.

According to him, the task force dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, which scored devastating hits on the target buildings, including a logistics facility.

Dole, which is located in the Yale-Kokiwa axis near Dikwa, was targeted because the settlement was being used by the terrorists as a venue to plan and launch attacks against the surrounding areas.

“The NAF attack aircraft similarly engaged the location, inflicting heavy damage on the insurgents’ structures and neutralising several fighters,’’ Enenche said.
