The battle against terrorism by the Nigerian Air Force received a boost yesterday with the enlistment of 498 personnel into the force.

The Air Chief, who was represented by the Chief of Policy and Plans, NAF headquarters, Air Vice Marshal James Gbum, told the 498 recruits that they were coming into the force at a time some disgruntled elements were taking arms against the nation.
He charged them that they must be ready to key into the NAF’s efforts to rid the nation of insurgency.
According to him, “The training you have just received is the basic military training. This is to prepare you for further training in the Air Force, because the Air Force is a highly technical service. Therefore, after this training, you will go further to the different specialties to acquire specialist’s training.
