Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, the Chief of Air Staff, has expressed confidence that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) would oust the terrorists and other criminal elements in Nigeria in no distant time.
Channels TV reports that he gave the assurance during an Easter Lunch with the personnel of 013 Quick Response Force Minna, where he commiserated with families and colleagues of the three Airmen who lost their lives in Allawa operations on Thursday, April 1.
Legit.ng gathered that Air Marshal Amao reiterated the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Air Force towards ensuring that insurgency and armed banditry are put to an end.
The Chief of Air Staff who was represented by Air Vice-Marshal Remiqius Ekeh commended the 013 Quick Response Force and Air Component of Operation GAMA AIKI as well as the gallant officers, airmen, and airwomen, urging them to remain resolute in the fight against insurgency and banditry.
Ekeh told them not to relent in their dedication and hard work towards achieving the mandate of protection of lives and properties of Nigerians.
The NAF boss stated that efforts are ongoing to recover the crashed NAF Alpha Jet Aircraft which was declared missing on March 31, 2021.
According to him, the claim that the jet was shot down by the insurgents is false.
He promised that available evidence will be made public when investigations are over.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the federal government said that security agents have arrested some Nigerians funding Boko Haram terrorists.
It was reported that the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known on Tuesday, March 30, while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.
Shehu insisted that people would be shocked when details of the investigation on how the sums of money were transferred to the group would be fully disclosed.
He also said places of worship are used to harbour killers of security agents in the country, assuring that heads of intelligence agencies are working on it.
