Air Force protects assets from Niger Delta Avengers

03 June 2016, 12:03

Abuja - The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has adopted new concepts to protect its air assets and critical installations in the country.

This is part of efforts towards coping with the dynamism of emerging security threats.

The process includes re-organising, retraining and re-equipping the Regiment Specialty to effectively defend NAF bases against attacks.

According to the Air Force, the service has also employed the use of Closed Circuit Camera to provide surveillance around perimeter fences of NAF bases while monitoring the entire Base-from-Base Defence Coordination Centre.

Meanwhile, the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar has reiterated that the nation and the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) in particular, could not afford to lose its critical assets to the activities of insurgents, terrorists and militants.

Abubakar said the Nigeria Air Force was committed to adopt all necessary security measures to forestall reccurrences of past mistakes.
