In order to boost the war against terrorism in the northeastern part of Nigeria, the Chief of Air Staff, Air vice Marshall Sadique Abubakar has said that more platforms of the air force would be sent to Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
Air Vice Marshall Abubakar assured that the deployment would be done this week.
The air chief revealed this at the weekend in Lagos during an inspection of logistics and facilities of the force ahead of the deployment, stressing that the military was winning the war against terrorism.
He said, “I don’t want to say that we are not winning this war. I think we are. What we are simply doing now is to re-strategise. We are going through all the activities that we have been doing in the past and the idea is to evaluate these activities to see the ones that we need to improve and that is why I am undergoing this tours of units.
“We started with the operational units, about 16 units that are directly involved in the war in the north-east,” he explained.
Air Vice Marshall Abubakar also stressed the need for adequate logistics to be in place as the military battles the Boko Haram terrorists.
