The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao has charged the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) operational Commanders across the country to show no mercy and ensure they employ maximum firepower against terrorists and their accomplices

Air Marshal Amao gave the charge when he met with frontline Air Officers Commanding (AOC) and Air Component Commanders (ACCs) at the NAF Base in Kaduna state.

While commending them for their efforts as well as the improved synergy with security agencies, Air Marshal Amao underscored the need for effective allocation of all NAF officers deployed for operations in the North West and North Central.

He noted that though the security environment remains fluid and uncertain with terrorists moving between the northeast, northwest and north central, the need to continually modify NAF’s air power strategies to stay ahead of the asymmetric and unconventional nature of terrorists’ activities is of paramount importance.

We have a responsibility to secure our nation and give our citizens a sense of hope, trust and belonging. 

Therefore, we must ensure that we stay ahead of the enemy and envisage his next line of action. 

Air Marshal Amao assured them that training of more combat pilots, imagery analysts and other specialities in the NAF would continue to be of utmost priority so as to address the manpower challenges within the operation areas.

He said efforts were at an advanced stage to procure more combat platforms to meet the demands of air assets in various theatres of operations across the country.
