Nigerian Airforce drone destroys Boko Haram base

On Saturday last week, the Nigerian Air Force said it has conducted 286 air operations on Boko Haram targets in the last one month.

According to the Deputy Theatre Commander (Air) of the counter-insurgency operation in the North-East (Operation Lafiya Dole), Air Vice Marshall Isiaka Amao, who made the revelation, the 286 “operational sorties” against Boko Haram terrorists targets conducted between December 25, 2015 and January 30 2016 translate to 157,000 square kilometres of operational coverage, equivalent “to the total land mass of South Korea, Portugal and Togo.”

He had also revealed that the operations were aimed at further degrading the terrorist group, while also trying to locate the abducted Chibok girls and others being held hostage by the terrorists.
