*Show no mercy to terrorists-CAS,OLADAYO AMAO
Chief of Air Staff (CAS) Oladayo Amao has tasked the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) operational commanders to sustain the bombardment of terrorists’ strongholds in the North.
He urged the commanders not to lower the current momentum or show mercy to the terrorists causing mayhem in the Northeast and Northwest.
Amao also charged them “to take cognisance of the dynamism and complexities of the ever-changing security environment while adopting the best strategies required to promote NAF’s retention of credible air power capability to prosecute its operations.”
A statement by NAF spokesman, Edward Gabkwet, said that the Air Chief spoke at a meeting with the commanders in Katsina State yesterday.
The statement reads in part: “The deployment of air power against terrorists and insurgents has changed the tides of the ongoing operations in entire northern Nigeria thereby giving most Nigerians some respite and confidence in the abilities of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“We mustn’t, however, be complacent believing that the enemy has been defeated. Instead, we must continue to seize the initiative while dictating the pace of the operations.”
