NO HIDING PLACE FOR TERRORISTS, INSURGENTS – CAS

Leaning on recent gains made against terrorists and insurgents in line with the operational objectives of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), the Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao met with Branch Heads, Air Officers Commanding and other senior officers yesterday, 23 February 2022 at the Air Marshal MD Umar (Rtd) Blue Room, Headquarters NAF. The meeting took stock of efforts and gains made so far in NAF's counter-terrorism and counterinsurgency efforts and recommended the need for increased and sustained firepower to completely decimate the capabilities of all armed groups in the country.



Air Marshal Amao used the opportunity to express his satisfaction with the progress made so far, especially in eliminating key terrorists in the Northeast and Northwest as well as destroying their hideouts. He thereafter charged NAF personnel engaged in ongoing joint operations to go after those against Nigeria’s peace and progress while ensuring that there is no hiding place for all terrorists and insurgents.



Air Marshal Amao also vowed to meet the operational requirements of all NAF units involved in joint operations so as to minimize threats posed by terrorists, insurgents and other criminals. The CAS then charged heads of operational units to continually ensure the provision of Close Air Support to Nigerian Army troops and other security agencies while sustaining the momentum until all terrorists are smoked out and neutralized. 'We mustn't relent until peace is restored to all affected areas,' he said. Speaking further, the CAS noted that immense efforts have been made in the areas of purposeful training and capacity building as well as enhancement of welfare for both serving and retired personnel, particularly in the provision of medical and healthcare services.



While commending all NAF personnel for their dedication, he urged them to remain apolitical especially now that political activities are gaining steam. He however urged them to ensure that they fulfil NAF’s constitutional role of Aid to Civil Authority should the NAF be called upon to assist in the airlift of election materials to various parts of Nigeria.



The one-day engagement also took note of the challenges facing operational units and measures to ameliorate their effects on ongoing operations.
