See photos and video coverage of NAF bombarding Boko Haram logistics base in Borno

In the continuous fight against Islamic sect group- Boko Haram, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has successfully cleared another logistics base belonging to the dreaded terrorist group.

The NAF F-7Ni fighter aircraft on Monday, April 11, carried out air strike on one of Boko Haram’s base in Kangarawa, Borno state.

The NAF dropped the first bomb at about 3.18pm.

The second bomb was dropped at about 3.21pm.

As the NAF bombed the logistics base, the Boko Haram insurgents could be seen running helter skelter.

The inferno and multi explosions, as can be seen from the footage of the air strike suggests that the logistics base probably houses a fuel or ammunition dump. 

This latest air strike is another major success of the air component of Operation Lafiya Dole and a setback for the terrorist sect. In recent times, its been one victory after the other.

According to Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, the chief of air staff, the Boko Haram insurgency in the north-east of the country will soon come to an end. On Sunday, April 10, troops of 155 task force battalion carried a clearance operation in Nimila village, where it rescued 14 people from the captivity of the insurgents and recovered weapons. 

The Nigerian troops of 152 task force battalion in conjunction with troops of sector 1 of multinational joint task force on Sunday, April 4, carried out clearance operation in suspected hideouts of Boko Haram terrorists. The troops cleared terrorists in Madawaya, Jere, Kardile, Koujili, Ngenere and Maksamari, as well as Douse, Bembem, Zombulum and Taraji villages. They killed 15 Boko Haram terrorists and captured some weapons. 

On March 29, Nigerian troops wiped out the terrorists from their headquarters in Alagarno Forest in Borno state. 

The army had a major breakthrough when it arrested the leader of the Ansaru Islamic Sect, Khalid Albarnawi, who is the second in command to the infamous Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram.
