April 13, 2016 – Nigerian Air Force Fighter Jets Destroy Boko Haram Fuel Depot In Borno State As Clearance Operation Continues
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), yesterday said its fighter jets on internal security operations in the North East, on Monday bombarded another logistics base belonging to the Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
The camp, suspected to be a fuel dump, located at Kangarawa in northern part of Borno State, was destroyed by NAF F-7Ni fighter jet.
NAF, in a statement issued by its director, Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said “the scale of accompanying inferno and multi explosions seen from the footage of the air strike, suggests that the location, possibly, houses a fuel or ammunition dump”.
Famuyiwa said the strike constituted another major setback for the insurgents, while providing tangible evidence of many of the recent successes recorded by the air component of Operation Lafiya Dole.
