Nigerian Air Force pounds more Boko Haram targets in Sambisa forest

The Air Force Alpha Jets yesterday hit strategic Boko Haram targets in the heart of the notorious Sambisa forest.

A statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information of the Air Force, Air Commodore Dele Alonge said mostly hit were Ngoshe and Pulka during combined raids with ground forces on the insurgents’ hideouts.

“The targets, which included solar panels believed to be used by the sect for generating electricity within the Sambisa forest, were hit during the recent take-over of Gamboru-Ngala by own troops”, Alonge said.

The statement added that the Air Force would continue to sustain the air assault against the insurgents, with a view to decimating the capability and the fighting spirit of the sect members.
