In response to allegations of the existence of a secret airstrip in the north of Burkinafaso serving terrorist groups, Government spokesman Lionel Bilgo stated that the government is investigating the issue.
” I had obtained the data from a confidential source long before this information was published. I also shared it with the ministries responsible for defence and security,” he added, The Burkinabe army already had “specific data or information on this subject.
Burkina Faso is working hard to confirm the existence of the airstrip in question.
Terrorist attacks that started in Burkina Faso in 2015 first intensified in the north and east, and then spread to various parts of the country. The government is trying to develop measures and strategies to combat terrorism.
