Military ‘currently bombing Sambisa, Gwoza’

The Nigerian military is currently carrying out an air raid on Sambisa forest and Gwoza, both in Borno state, Chris Olukolade, a major-general and director of defence information, has said.

The air raid, he said, has already resulted in the death of more Boko Haram militants, following the earlier killing of about 300 Boko Haram militants in “comprehensive military raids”. “A concerted air campaign by the Nigerian air force is ongoing in furtherance of the mission to clear terrorists from all their enclaves,” he said.

“The air strikes which today targeted the training camps and logistics dumps of the terrorists in Sambisa forests and parts of Gwoza, have been highly successful as it achieved the aims with required precision. “The death of a large number of terrorists has been recorded while many others are also scampering all over the forest and out of the struck bases.” Olukolade added that details of casualty would be determined in subsequent phases of the operation.

“Meanwhile, the strikes continue in other locations of the theatre, heralding the advance of troops and other elements of the mission,” he said. Follow us on twitter @thecableng
