Nigerian Air Force ‘destroys Boko Haram logistics base’

A Nigerian Air Force’s Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has
destroyed a logistics base used by members of the Boko Haram
Terrorists group, the air force said in a statement Tuesday.
The UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
(ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of BHTs at Garin
Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest,
spokesperson Ayodele Famuyiwa, a group captain, said.
“At the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under
surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs and
vehicles.
“The multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location, as
can be seen from the enclosed video of the UAV strike, strongly
suggests that it may be either an ammunition/fuel storage or
weapons/technical workshop.
“This strike is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram Sect, and
a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops,” the
statement said.
