Nigerian ground troops with aerial supports from air taskforce are currently engaging Boko Haram terrorists in Damasak, the headquarters of Mobbar Local Government Area of Borno State.
It was gathered that some of the terrorists were suspected to be on a looting spree as they stormed warehouses of international humanitarian agency in their guntrucks.
A intelligence officer said some of terrorists were fleeing as they saw military aircraft “The good news is the NAF aircraft is currently dropping bombs on the terrorists’ targets while ground troops have stationed themselves in strategic locations exchanging fire,” the source added.
Last month, March 2021, NAF helicopters had killed dozens ISWAP/Boko Haram Fighters when they attacked the same town. At least four guntrucks were also destroyed. More details with pictures later.
