The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, said this in Maiduguri on Sunday while reacting to allegations that his men failed to respond to call to bomb the insurgents when the attack was going on.

Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has assured Katsina State residents that the Nigeria Air force ‘Operation Harbin Daji’ against bandits, kidnappers, cattle rustlers and armed robbers would be different.

Abubakar stated this on Saturday when the Nigerian Air Force Plane Boeing NAF 917 brought 60 airmen and officers to partake in the “Operation Harbin Daji” to wipe out bandits in the state.

Represented by the Air Officer Commanding Special Operations, Bauchi Command, Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Charles Ohwo, the airforce boss said that it was no longer news about the incessant killing of innocent people in Batsari and Jibiya Local Government Areas of the state.


According to him, their mission is to save the people of the area through the operation, code-named “Operations Harbin Daji,” which is different.

He charged the officers and airmen deployed for the assignment to operate strictly within the core values of the air force including “discipline, commitment and integrity.”

Abubakar noted that criminality in those areas and the North-West geo-political zone would soon come to an end.
