We’re coming for you, Air chief warns bandits
The Chief of Air Staff, Isiaka Amao, has said the days of bandits and kidnappers terrorising the country are numbered as the Nigerian military is battle-ready to rid the nation of their nefarious activities.
Amao noted that the military had perfected plans, through synergy, that would deal criminal elements in the country a death blow.
He spoke yesterday during an operational visit to the Nigerian air force base in Kaduna state.
The air chief said the military efforts are geared towards beating the deadline given by President Buhari that the service chiefs must ensure that people go freely to their farms during the rainy season without any security threat.
“Our officers and men are ready for the battle against bandits and kidnappers,” he said.
“We are working towards that in synergy, the platforms are ready for the operations and we are liaising with the Army and other ground troops for the operations.
“My message to bandits is that we are coming after them together with the Army, Navy and other security agencies to make sure they are flushed out of the country.”
Amao said the welfare of the air force personnel will be prioritised so as to motivate the officers to diligently carry out their duties.
“Welfare entails providing the personnel with equipments, conducive training environment and where they live and to make sure they are given their entitlements”, he said.
The air chief also paid a courtesy visit to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, of Kaduna state after the operational visit.
