Boko Haram bombed

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

LAGOS: The Nige­rian Air Force (NAF) on Wed­nes­day said it had de­stroyed lo­gis­tics bases used by Boko Haram mil­i­tants in their Sam­bisa for­est hide­outs, in the north-east­ern part of the coun­try.

NAF spokesper­son Ola­tokunbo Ade­sanya said a gath­er­ing of Boko Haram fight­ers was spot­ted dur­ing a re­con­nais­sance mis­sion over Parisu in the Sam­bisa gen­eral area.

A large group of in­sur­gents were seen con­verg­ing un­der a tree close to a partly con­cealed zinc-roofed struc­ture. Airstrikes de­stroyed the build­ing while an air­craft strafed flee­ing in­sur­gents.
