In their continued effort to make sure the country is free from all terrorist attacks, the subsidiary Operation HAIL STORM 2, currently being executed by the Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has again recorded appreciable success in their resolve to forestall terrorists’ activities in the North East Zone.
In a statement by the Coordinator of Defence Media Operations Major General John Enenche, Crews of Operation HAIL STORM 2 neutralized several Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHTs’) and destroyed their hideouts at Maima and Tusuye, settlements near Warshale and Tongule along the Dikwa-Rann axis of Borno State during air strikes executed on 1 October 2020.
According to General Enenche, This feat was achieved sequel to credible Human Intelligence reports as well as series of aerial surveillance missions, which indicated that the locations were being used as rendezvous points by the BHTs.
In response to the intelligence, the ATF dispatched an appropriate force package of Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships to engage the 2 locations. The attack aircraft scored devastating hits in the target areas, destroying some structures and neutralizing several of the terrorists.
