We’ll Rid Northeast, Katsina of Banditry, Air Force Chief

The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has vowed that personnel of the Nigerian Air Force would get rid of bandits in Katsina State and the North west region of the country.

Sadique stated this when 60 additional Airmen and officers were deployed on Thursday to Katsina for Special ‘Operation Harbin Daji’ in Batsari and Jibiya areas and other flash spots in the state.

The Air Officer Commanding Special Operation, Bauchi Command, Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Charles Ohwo, represented the Chief of Air Staff during the deployment.

“I implore you to inject more fighting techniques which you have learnt to bear with your assignment with a view to bringing the bandits to their kneels.

“I am very sure, with the help of God, we will succeed. There’ll soon be no hiding place for the bandits in Katsina and the entire North West Geo-Political Zone,” he assured.

Sadique thanked Gov Aminu Masari for his support and cooperation to the Air Force and the Special Operations unit in the state.

He said barely 48 hours after their deployment to the state, the operation had started yielding positive results.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently gave the nation’s Armed Forces marching order to rid the state of criminals.

The order came following growing activities of bandits, cattle rustlers, kidnappers and armed robbers in parts of the state.
