Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole have reportedly eliminated Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) and destroyed their gun trucks at Ajiri in Borno State.
This was disclosed by the coordinator of Defence Media Operations at Defence Headquarters, Major General John Enenche in a statement.
The statement titled “Air Task Force eliminates several terrorists, immobilizes their gun trucks at Ajiri in Borno State” reads in part:
“The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has dealt yet another blow on insurgents operating in the North East of the Country, with the elimination of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) and destruction of their gun trucks at Ajiri in Borno State.
“This was achieved on the night of 19 December 2020 sequel to reports that the terrorists, in about 7 gun trucks, had attempted to breach Ajiri, a settlement in Mafa Local Government Area of the State.
“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) helicopter gunships to engage the BHTs.
“The NAF gunships delivered accurate hits, destroying 2 of the gun trucks and neutralizing several terrorists.”
