Tuesday January 30, 2018 – Nigerian Airforce, NAF Remotely Piloted Aircraft Bombards Boko Haram Terrorists Regrouping In Sambisa

NAF on Monday said it has used a RPA (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) to neutralize scores of Boko Haram at the Parisu axis of Sambisa forest.

NAF spokesperson, Olatokunbo Adesanyan in a press statement supported with video footage said the use of the remotely piloted aircraft followed an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform confirming the presence of the insurgents in the area.

The statement reads:

“A Nigerian Air Force (NAF) remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), on 27 January 2018, successfully destroyed an artillery gun and some gun trucks belonging to the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) in the Sambisa Forest.

A NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform and the RPA had observed the terrorists withdrawing with the artillery gun and gun trucks after an unsuccessful operation.

The NAF crews on both the ISR and the armed RPA trailed the withdrawing insurgents to their final destination in Parisu. Thereafter, the RPA acquired the artillery gun position and attacked the piece, causing a huge explosion and destroying the equipment.

The explosion also killed insurgents operating the equipment and those around it while a few others were sighted fleeing from the site of the explosion.

The successful air strikes are part of the ongoing coordinated air and land operations aimed at ridding the Sambisa Forest of the remnants of the insurgents.”

    I DON‘T KNOW How true is this story and we can‘t just conclude that its a lie. But the truth is, I don‘t know what to believe anymore.

    Maybe its true and maybe this is just another stunt by th NAF just to remain relevant.

    BUT One indefatigeable truth is:- Boko Haram‘s activities is still very active especially in the northeasthern Nigeria.
    Let no one decieve you about that.

    THEREFORE, ALL THE Buhari‘s claims about having defeated them many months ago was nothing but mere bluff and lies with a complete uniforms walking about and breathing.

    I take a stroll…
