Musdapha Ilo, Maiduguri
The Nigeria Air Force, NAF, says it has recovered from the December 2, 2013 attack on its Base and is intensifying efforts to ensure that insurgents are flushed out of Borno State.
A statement by the public relations officer of the 79 Composite Group, Chris Erondu, said the Air Force is doubling efforts in the fight against Boko Haram terrorists in the north east and has succeeded in chasing many insurgents hiding around the Sambisa forest into neighbouring countries like Cameron, Chad and Niger Republic.
Erondu added that in line with NAF task to restore normalcy in the city of Maiduguri, the 79 Composite Group had in the couple of weeks been providing air supports to other security agencies in Maiduguri metropolis and its environs.
He noted that the results of these air operations have been remarkable as men of the JTF ‘Operation Zaman Lafiya’ and other security outfits have been able to restore law and order to the state capital and its environs.
