Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, Chief of Air Staff, has told Nigerians that the military is ready to deal effectively with bandits, kidnappers, and other criminals around the world.
On Wednesday, Amao, who was on an operational visit to the Nigerian Air Force Base in Kaduna State, said that the military would go after pirates, kidnappers, and other criminals.
The CAS, who also paid Governor Nasir El-Rufai a courtesy visit, said, “Our officers and men are ready for the fight against bandits and kidnappers,” adding that the aim of the visit was to assess the operational readiness of the staff.
He said that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had ordered the military to ensure that people go freely to their farms during the rainy season without any security threat.
“We are working towards that in synergy, the platforms are ready for the operations and we are liaising with the Army and other ground troops for the operations.
“My message to bandits is that we are coming after them together with the Army, Navy and other security agencies to make sure the they are flushed out of the country,” Amao said.
He stated that the welfare of the NAF personnel would be accorded full priority, to ensure motivation and diligence in the discharge of their duties.
“Welfare entails providing the personnel with equipment, conducive training environment and where they live and to make sure they are given their entitlements,” he added.
The CAS, therefore, charged the personnel on loyalty, dedication and discipline in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities.
