The Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said the Nigerian Air force (NAF) would ensure that the territorial integrity of Nigeria and its national sovereignty is not undermined by any bunch of criminals.
Abubakar disclosed this on Tuesday in Gombe when he paid a courtesy visit on Gov. Inuwa Yahaya.
Abubakar stated that as part of the effort to activate the Reconnaissance Base in Gombe State, the Nigerian Air Force has sent more than 71 of its personnel to China on training.
The Air Marshal stated that all the personnel including their commander will be relocated to Gombe State as soon as they arrive the country.
He said that the NAF Base in Gombe State was strategic not only in the fight against insurgency but also in the fight against banditry and other criminal activities in the north.
On his part, Gov. Yahaya commended the Chief of Army Staff, and Nigerian Air force for their efforts in ensuring the speedy completion of the base to strengthen security in the sub-region and the country at large.
Yahaya stated that the establishment of the base in the state would help the fight against insecurity in the country and when such is achieved the economy of the country would also improve.
