The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been receiving commendations since the evening of Thursday, January 2, when photographs of its personnel airlifting conjoined twins surfaced on the internet.
In what NAF described as civil-military relations, it released the photographs of the beautiful twins joined together in the abdomen and needing surgery.
The twins were airlifted from Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa with their parents to Port Harcourt in NAF helicopter before they headed for Yola, Adamawa state where the surgery is expected to be performed at a Federal Medical Centre (FMC).
"The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) today, 2 January 2020, airlifted a set of conjoined twins along with their parents and the medical team from Yenagoa to Yola via Port Harcourt by helicopter and fixed-wing transport aircraft.
"The twins, who are joined at the abdomen, are expected to undergo surgery at the Federal Medical Centre in Yola," the security organisation said.
It explained that it undertook the airlift as a humanitarian gesture to assist the family of the twins.
"The entire NAF family prays for the success of their operation," the security agency said.
