During the operations conducted near Sambisa Forest, terrorists were said to be moving objects suspected to be arms and ammunition to the area.

A statement on Sunday by the Nigerian Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, stated that the terrorists and their weapons were subsequently bombed.

Gabkwet noted that a total of 12 terrorists were killed during the operation.

He said, “The convergence of terrorists within the location raised suspicion of their intent and plan, hence, the directive to strike the location. The aftermath of the strikes led to a huge ball of flames from two adjacent spots within the vicinity, while some surviving terrorists were observed scampering for safety.

“Feedback also revealed that 12 terrorists were neutralised in the strike and their logistics destroyed, thereby degrading their ability to attack soft targets and their own troops.”
