NAF To Establish Special Operations Unit In Nasarawa | The Tide

The Nigerian Air Force says it will establish a Special Operations Unit in Nasarawa State to curb the incessant security challenges in the state, especially along the border communities with Benue.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, disclosed this yesterday when he led other officers of the Air Force on a courtesy visit to Governor Umaru Al-Makura at Government House, Lafia.

Abubakar said the decision to establish the unit followed the threat analysis conducted by the Air Force in 2017, where it identified the fringes between Nasarawa and Benue states as requiring more security attention.
He said that the headquarters of the Tactical Air Command and several other units were located in Makurdi, Benue, hence the need to have the special operations unit in Nasarawa State.
