Why The Tucano Fighter Jets Can't Be Used Against Unknown Gunmen In The Southeast Region

According to a report reaching us from a reliable source, the federal government has received all 12 A-29 Super Tucano fighter jets from the United States of America. The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who confirmed this in an interview on TV Continental yesterday, described the fighter jets as a "game-changer" and disclosed that they have been used for operations in the northeast. We are aware of how a violent group identified as "unknown gunmen" has been inflicting havoc in the Southeast. Many have wondered why the federal government doesn't want to use the newly acquired Tucano fighter jets in the Southeast region to combat those deadly gangs. However, there is a reason why the Tucano fighter jets can't be used against unknown gunmen in the southeast region.

The United States government says the Federal Government is expected to deploy the Super Tucano aircraft only in the northern part of the country, where Boko Haram terrorists have engaged the Nigerian state in a decade-long insurgency, killing thousands and displacing millions. In the agreement signed by the federal government of Nigeria and the US government, the "super Tucano" fighter jets are allowed to be used against Boko Haram terrorists and ISWAP members in the Northeast region. The US government confirmed that the fighter jets are expected to be deployed only in the northern part of the country, where Boko Haram terrorists are attacking innocent people and government facilities.

Moreover, the federal government won't ask the military to utilize the Tucano fighter jets in the Southeast region to combat unknown gunmen because it wasn't part of their agreement, and the US has asked the FG to only deploy the Super Tucano aircraft in the northern part of the country where Boko Haram terrorists have been wreaking havoc.

Inhabitants in the north wake up fearful of being attacked by Boko Haram terrorists. The deadly gang has wasted many lives and properties. I believe the Tucano fighter jets will help flush them out of their hiding spots. This aircraft will go a long way to help get rid of Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists giving the northern region unrest.
