The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Isyaka Amao, has assured Nigerians of the readiness of the military to deal decisively with bandits, kidnappers and other criminals across the country.
Amao made this known while on an operational visit to the Nigerian Air Force Base in Kaduna, on Wednesday, NAN reports.
According to him, the military would deal with all criminals terrorizing the people.
“Our officers and men are ready for the battle against bandits and kidnappers.
“We are working towards that in synergy, the platforms are ready for the operations and we are liaising with the Army and other ground troops for the operations.
“My message to bandits is that we are coming after them together with the Army, Navy and other security agencies to make sure they are flushed out of the country,” he said.
He said the welfare of the NAF personnel would be accorded full priority, to ensure motivation and diligence in the discharge of their duties.
“Welfare entails providing the personnel with equipment, conducive training environment and where they live and to make sure they are given their entitlements”, he added.
The CAS, however, charged officers on loyalty, dedication and discipline in discharging their constitutional responsibilities.
