Federal Government To Deploy Fighter Jets Against Bandits

Federal Government To Deploy Fighter Jets Against Bandits.

As part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s relentless efforts to eradicate terrorism before 2023, the federal government will launch 12 Super Tucano jets against bandits.

While the federal government has begun to finalize the conditions for the issue of a gazette that will legally identify bandits as terrorists, the United States (US) has not handed Nigeria a blank check on the employment of fighter jets, according to The Nation.

It was also discovered that US personnel have been visiting Nigeria to assess the use of the aircraft in accordance with the terms of sale, implementing a monthly timetable set out by the North American country to monitor the jets’ deployment, battlegrounds, and reason of deployment.

According to the journal, the Attorney-General of the Federation’s Office and the Minister of Justice stated that the procedures were almost completed last night.

The classification of bandits as terrorists by a court gave an impetus to the war against insurgency, according to a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The source said; 

“You know that the Federal Government, on its own, went to court and got the judgment declaring bandits as terrorists.  This has excited everyone.

“The American suppliers of the aircraft needed to be assured that Nigeria will keep to the terms of the sale, which is to strictly use them against terrorists.

“Now that the courts have said so, you should expect the deployment of the aircraft as soon as all processes, including the gazetting of the judgment, are completed.

“But, even before this is done, new platforms are being received and deployed and you can see the devastating effects of the nation’s airpower on the terrorists and bandits in the Northeast and the Northwest.

 “Last week’s Nigeria Air Force bombing of the camp of the notorious bandit, Turji, in Zamfara State, is a case in point. Things are changing very rapidly.”
