The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has commenced the training of a team of Special Forces to combat terrorists in some parts of the country.
About 175 of the NAF operatives graduated from the Regiment Training Centre at the Airforce base in Kaduna state after a successful 10-week rigorous and intensive training in asymmetric warfare.
The move by the NAF is to wipe out terrorism and its affiliates from the Nigerian soil.
While speaking, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar during his visit to the training ground, said the new trends of terrorism and other security challenges in the country prompted the training of the personnel.
Sadique Abubakar reiterated the commitment of the Air Force to collaborate with other security agencies, especially the Army to address the nation’s security challenges
