This was disclosed via a statement released on Monday, March 21, 2016, by NAF spokesman, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa.

It reads in part:

“This effort is likely to create certain logistics constraints for the terrorists along the Allagarno axis.”

“This is a follow-up to other interdiction missions previously carried out in Sambisa Forest, Kumshe, Iza and other suspected terrorists’ hide-outs.”

“So far, the NAF has carried out a total of 55 missions comprising 14 ISR, 30 interdiction/combat air support and 11 air logistics support missions in the month of March 2016.”

Famuyiwa said further that the mission had served the purpose of degrading the fighting capacity of the remnants of the insurgents.
