The latest of these was achieved 28 December 2020, at the ‘S’ Region in the heart of the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

A Statement by the coordinator defense media operations major general John enenche says The air strike, which was executed employing a force package of Nigerian Air Force fighter jets, was carried out after series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions revealed that the terrorists responsible for recent attacks in the Southern part of Borno and Northern part of Adamawa State had originated from the location.

Accordingly, the NAF attack aircraft engaged the target area in successive passes, leading to the destruction of some of their structures and logistics stores, including a suspected anti-aircraft gun station as the terrorists fired at the NAF aircraft. Several insurgents were also killed in the process.
