Boko Haram terrorists abandon Iza camp flee into Sambisa forest after heavy bombardment


The Boko Haram terrorists have abandoned their camp at Iza in Borno State and fled into Sambisa Forest following the air onslaught by Alpha Jets of the Nigeria Air Force on Tuesday.

The Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI), Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, saying that NAF Mi-35 Helicopter Gunship provided close air support for the ground troops for the liberation of the camp.

According to Famuyiwa, “The success of the air attack paved way for the follow-up clearance operation by own troops of 121 Task Force Battalion who consolidated on the gains of the air strikes to flush out the remnants of BHT as well as destroyed their leftover camps”.
