“In line with its commitment to
national peace and security, the air
force has deployed some of its air
assets, including the Alpha Jet
aircraft, to its 115 Special Operations
Group in Port Harcourt, to support the
ongoing Nigerian Army’s Exercise
Egwu Eke II.”
“The entire essence of the deployment
is to provide the necessary air cover
for the ground troops to enhance
overall operational cohesion and
efficiency. The wide expanse of the
exercise area and the request by the
Nigerian Army for close air support
made the involvement of the NAF
“The deployment of the air assets in
support of the Nigerian Army is thus in
fulfillment of one of the constitutional
mandates of the NAF.”
