Nigeria Air Force: We are capable of combating insurgency


The Nigerian Air Force in Lagos on Sunday, said it had incorporated some new systems and ammunition aimed at winning the fight against insurgency in the country.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosun, made the disclosure while speaking with journalists at the National Air Defence Corps in Ikeja.

Amosun said the new systems and ammunition were currently being tested in Lagos to bring additional capabilities to the ongoing fight against insurgency in the north-east.

He urged the citizens not to panic as occasionally there might be gun fires and ammunition being delivered, adding that the Air Force had been on air, notifying the public accordingly.

Amosun said that though fighting insurgency and terrorism were not easy tasks, they are well trained to fight and subdue it.

The Air Marshal said there were collaborations from the French forces from Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

On the coming general election, Amosun said the Air Force would also play its role by moving materials from major locations like Abuja and Lagos to other areas where there are airports.

Amosun thanked the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Goodluck Jonathan for his support, saying he is the reason why they can achieve all these
