Nigerian Air Force on Wednesday 2nd September 2015 struck and destroyed solar panels believed to have been used by Boko Haram for electricity supply in Sambisa forest.
There is an ongoing air assault staged by Nigerian Air Force against terrorists to root them out of their major strongholds including Sambisa forest. The Sambisa Forest is a forest in Borno State, northeast Nigeria where the militants have centralized most of their operations.
However, intelligence summaries indicate that NAF is clearing the militants off their northeast strongholds. Recent OSINT sources indicate that combined efforts of NAF and ground forces on the insurgents’ hideouts destroyed most of the hideouts, and in the process killing a large number of them.
Without electricity, the terrorist group as good as crippled. They are largely in the hands of troops and the future holds possibilities of a failed militant group in Nigeria and her neighbors.
Nigeria’s military with the backing of a regional force made of troops from the neighboring Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin have hit hard on Boko Haram, decimating the capability and the fighting spirit of the sect members.
