Enenche said the air interdiction was aimed at taking out identified Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists in the North East.
He explained that one of the targets was located at Bula Sabo on the fringes of the Sambisa forest, identified as a settlement used as a dwelling place by some terrorist commanders.
According to him, the task force dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships, which scored devastating hits on the target buildings, including a logistics facility.
âIn the same vein, Dole, which is located in the Yale-Kokiwa axis near Dikwa, was targeted because the settlement was being used by the terrorists as a venue to plan and launch attacks against locations in the surrounding areas.
âThe NAF attack aircraft similarly engaged the location, inflicting heavy damage on the insurgentsâ structures and neutralising several fighters,ââ he said.
