The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, said it has commenced rotation of troops deployed on OPERATION SAFE HAVEN in Plateau State.

Operation Safe Haven is the codename for a military special task force that is engaging armed bandits and cattle rustlers in Plateau and Bauchi States.

Information on the force’s social media page showed that the aim of the rotation exercise is to boost the morale of the troops by withdrawing those who have spent in excess of 6 months from the theatre of operation to reunite them with their families.

“The injection of fresh troops also adds to the efficiency and effectiveness of the internal security operation,” the post read.

The statement added that “troops were being airlifted by C-130H aircraft from Jos, and vice versa, to their various units located in different parts of the country.”

Locations covered by the ongoing airlift operation include Benin, Calabar Uyo, Port Harcourt and Enugu.

Others are Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Kainji, Minna and Makurdi, Ilorin, Ibadan and Lagos.
