The Chief of Air Staff, Isiaka Amao, has sent a warning to bandits, kidnappers and other criminals that the Nigerian military is ready to flush them out.
Speaking on Wednesday during an operational visit to the Nigerian air force base in Kaduna state, Amao said the military has perfected plans to go after criminal elements terrorizing Nigerians.
He disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari had directed the military to ensure people return to their farms during the rainy season without any security threat.
Amao said: “Our officers and men are ready for the battle against bandits and kidnappers.”
“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 they are flushed out of the country.”
According to NAN, Amao said the welfare of the air force personnel will be prioritised so as to motivate the officers to diligently carry out their duties.
“Welfare entails providing the personnel with equipments, conducive training environment and where they live and to make sure they are given their entitlements”, he said.
