Gen. Enenche also disclosed that several fighters of the Boko Haram, were also neutralized in the encounter

According to him, another air strike also killed several terrorists, at a settlement about 1.7 Km East of Yale, in Borno State

“The air raids were undertaken yesterday, 30 November 2020, after credible Human Intelligence reports and series of aerial surveillance missions had indicated that some of the BHTs that carried out recent attacks against innocent civilians were harboured in makeshift structures under the dense vegetation of the Sambisa Forest while others were tracked to the settlement East of Yale.

“Accordingly, the Air Task Force dispatched Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and helicopter gunships to attack the 2 locations.
