Gallant Nigerian Soldiers stop two suicide bombers.
Boko Haram terrorists have suffered some massive losses after a Nigerian Air Force drone hit their base near Sambisa Forest, killing many and destroying equipment, according to the military.
Explaining how the sect’s members were hit, Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigerian Air Force, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said in a statement:
“The Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has destroyed a logistics base used by members of the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) group.
“The UAV was on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission when it came across the gathering of BHTs at Garin Moloma, about one kilometre north of the Sambisa Forest.“At the time of the UAV attack, the location, though under surveillance for quite a while, had a large gathering of BHTs and vehicles.
“The multiple explosions and huge fire ball from the location strongly suggests that it may be either an ammunition/fuel storage or weapons/technical workshop.
“This strike is thus a major setback for the Boko Haram sect, and a major plus for the fight against insurgency by own troops.”
Also on Tuesday, two would-be suicide bombers were stopped by troops from entering Maiduguri.
The military averted a suicide attack on Maiduguri when troops intercepted two bombers before they could enter the city, home to over two million people, many of them IDPs fleeing attacks and insecurity.
