By the end of the year, another batch of six fighter jets will be delivered.
Meanwhile, the military continues to bomb terrorist and bandit enclaves, forcing members of terror groups to surrender in huge numbers to troops, indicating that the almost a decade of bloodshed is coming to an end, but the new jets have yet to be deployed.
They are still awaiting induction into the Nigerian Air Force fleet at a military installation in Kano.
“Recall that the NAF confirmed the arrival of the first batch of 6 Tucanos into Nigeria via Kano on July 15th,” he stated. So the most important thing is that the six planes are currently in Nigeria.
“The NAF will deploy the six aircraft at the most convenient period. When installing such equipment, a great deal of planning and care is given to other needs and requirements. The good news is that the NAF's other platforms have continued to perform admirably on the battlefield.
“An induction date will be revealed soon.”
