Captain-Ayodele-Famuyiwa1~01

The Director of Public Relations of the Nigerian Air Force, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, told Channels Television over the week, that the area bombarded by the Air Force drone in the Sambisa Forest, is the logistics base of the Boko Haram sect and that the military took appropriate precautions to be sure the over 200 kidnapped Chibok girls were not being held in that location.

He said:“We have no fears that the girls are not there because hat particular location has been under surveillance for quite a while and we suspected maybe it’s a kind of ammunition depot or maybe a workshop that they are using as their logistics place.

“Once you take off the logistics base, of course you gradually weaken the resolve of the enemy to be able to prosecute any campaign.”

Group Captain Famuyiwa said the military is deploying the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to maximum use in its battle with Boko Haram because it is cheaper to run and reduces the loss of lives.

The UAVs,he said : “have the capability to be airborne for up to eleven hours and they are quite cheap to maintain. So, we have been able to employ the UAV to a great extent to carry out reconnaissance and surveillance basically for intelligence gathering on the activities of the Boko Haram.”

He said that the UAVs have also helped the Air Force to understand the terrorists’ pattern of movement and “how to be able to counter them should they want to strike or spring any surprise”.

The girls were abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State in 2014.

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo had some time in the past, said that the girls may never be found again.
