Nigerian Airforce Drone Destroys Boko Haram Facility
A Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) in Abuja has successfully destroyed one Boko Haram vehicle workshop in Sambisa, on Monday, killing many insurgents in the process.

Consequently, an NAF RPA was detailed to conduct armed reconnaissance in search of Boko Haram vehicles and terrorists around the location, which was apparently being used as a vehicle workshop.
The RPA discovered that Boko Haram terrorists motorcycles and vehicles, including a Boko haram terrorists Commander’s vehicle were parked in the targeted area. Additionally, several terrorists were seen moving intermittently within the targeted area.
“The subsequent air strike by the NAF RPA resulted in the immediate destruction of the vehicles in the targeted location. Killing all the insurgents inside it, as no survivors were seen scampering from the location after impact,” The statement read.
