The Nigerian Air Force has promised to end the ongoing war against Boko Haram in the North East before the end of this year.
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, gave the assurance on Saturday in Maiduguri while addressing troops of the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole, saddled with the task of ending the war on terrorism in the North East.
Abubakar said the Nigerian Air Force must ensure that the territorial integrity of Nigeria is not undermined by any individual or group of individuals
He said, “We must, therefore, keep working hard and I am very sure at least, before the end of this year or latest by the end of this year,
we will be rounding up this operation. So work towards that and rest assured that the Nigerian Air Force will continue to support you.
“I have been adequately briefed by the Commander and I have also been monitoring what you have been doing in the last few months, starting with “Operation Long Reach I” and “Operation Long Reach II”. I want to say that we are satisfied,
we are very excited that you are making substantial progress in ensuring that the Boko Haram terrorists are eliminated in the Northeast so that our people can go back to their farms and live their normal lives.
