EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) has killed scores of Boko Haram fighters in Borno State.
This online media platform learnt that the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Hadin Kai on Saturday, December 9, destroyed a critical armoury of Boko Haram terrorists at Amchile within the Gezuwa area around BAMA Local Government Area.
According to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency publication focused on the Lake Chad region, the operation was conducted at about 1900 hours after Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed the presence of large numbers of Boko Haram in the location.
The ISR platform reportedly attacked the target area in multiple waves, killing scores of terrorists in addition to the armoury destroyed.
An intelligence source told Zagazola Makama that the first wave of attacks recorded direct hits on a suspected Boko Haram ammunition dump, sending it up in flames, adding that the few surviving BHTs that were seen fleeing the area were mopped up in follow-up attacks.
