NAF Deploys Additional Platforms To North West (Photo)

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has deployed additional platforms to the North West to reinforce the on-going
operation against cattle rustling, armed banditry and kidnapping. The
new deployments, comprising fixed and
rotary wing aircraft, complement those deployed earlier for the
operation. The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Mshl Sadique Abubakar yesterday made an
operational visit to 119 Forward Operations Base (FOB), Sokoto to access the deployment. The visit also availed the CAS the opportunity to
undertake a facility tour of the Unit as well as paid a courtesy call
on His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alh (Dr) Muhammad Sa’ad
Abubakar (III) in his palace.
Addressing the press at the end of the visit, Air Mshl Abubakar stated
that the additional deployment was based on the analysis of threat in the region; given that cattle rustling currently pose a serious
security challenge in Zamfara State hence the need to take drastic steps to curb the situation. To tackle the
problem, the CAS stated that the NAF will continue to work in synergy with other security agencies in
order to achieve the desired end state. Air Mshl Abubakar further
hinted on the plan underway to: restructure 119 FOB Sokoto, reactivate existing infrastructure and build new ones, deploy additional Regiment personnel to enhance the
operational capability of the Unit and its participation in Internal Security Operations within the area.
