Air Strikes Against Terrorists Best Tribute To Fallen Heroes – Air Chief

The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Hasan Abubakar, says there is no better way to pay tribute to members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria who have paid the supreme price in the defence of Nigeria than to sustain the joint air, ground and maritime strikes against terrorists, insurgents, economic saboteurs and other non-state actors in the country.

The CAS stated this while commending the Air Component Commanders of the various joint theatres of operation in the country for the series of successful air strikes undertaken since the beginning of year 2024, just as the nation prepares to celebrate the 2024 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

“As recent as 13 January 2024, air interdiction strikes by the air component of Operation Hadin Kai at Tumbunma Baba near Lake Chad, proved successful as several terrorists were eliminated and their vehicles and structures destroyed,” NAF spokesman said in a statement on Sunday.

Air Marshal Abubakar noted that while the entire nation can never repay the fallen heroes, efforts at restoring peace and tranquility in all parts of the country must be sustained to return the country to its peaceful past which was made possible by the dedication and commitment of the fallen heroes.

He said, “We have no excuse not to deliver on our mandate as the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Federal Government has provided the wherewithal for us to succeed. We must, therefore, continue to sustain the momentum of our operations and give our citizens the confidence they require to go about their businesses without fear.”

The CAS also called on all Nigerians to continue to offer gratitude, goodwill, solidarity and unrelenting prayers to the fallen heroes and their families.
