The Directorate of Defence Media Operations, DMO says the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE has destroyed a Boko Haram Terrorists’ Training Camp along with a suspected ammunition depot and neutralized several terrorists at Nuwar in the Bama area of Borno State.

DMO Coordinator Major General John Enenche says this was achieved through air strikes executed on 14 January 2021 sequel to intelligence reports indicating that the cluster of huts and other structures in the settlement were being used to conduct combat training for the terrorists on a regular basis.

Following a series of confirmatory aerial surveillance missions, Nigerian Air Force helicopter gunships in a night raid scored accurate hits on the target area which led to the neutralization of several BHTs as well as the destruction of some of their structures, including their armoury where multiple mini explosions were observed amidst the raging fire. Several other terrorists neutralized in follow-on attacks by the helicopter gunships.
