From Sani Gazas Chinade, Damaturu
Yobe state, Governor Mai Mala Buni and the Chief of Air staff, Air Marshall, Hassan Abubakar, today discussed areas of improvement on aerial patrol to improve security across the state determined to improve peaceful coexistence.
Governor Buni said the recent attack on some soft targets along the borders of the state calls for improved surveillance.
Buni noted that the state shares local and international borders with Nigerian states and Niger Republic, making aerial patrol of the state necessary for improved security.
“This is so because the gunmen who recently attacked the border villages infiltrated into the state from outside to attack the villages” Governor Buni observed.
He assured the readiness of his administration to partner with the security agencies to fortify the state and deal with any possible threat to the state.
Governor Buni urged the people of the state to cooperate with the security agencies, and report suspicious persons and movements in their localities for proactive action.
The Chief of Air Staff assured that the force is committed to safeguarding the lives and property of every Nigerian.
He said the Nigeria Airforce has upscaled its operations in the state and the Northeast in general, to improve security in the area.
He also called on the people to cooperate with the security operatives for a collective and pragmatic approach to possible security challenge in their communities”
