Nigerian Airforce Join Operation Python Dance II In The South-East | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Nigerian Air Force has joined the Operation Python Dance II campaign in the Southeast by deploying its air assets in support of the ground troops.



The NAF said the deployment of the air assets was not only based on the request of the Nigerian Army for air support but inevitable due to the wide expanse of the exercise area.

A statement on Tuesday night by the Director of Information and Public Relations of the NAF, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, said “the essence of the deployment is to provide the necessary air cover to the ground troops to enhance overall operational cohesion and efficiency.”

The statement supported with video footage showed two Alpha Jet Aircrafts on aerial surveillance of the coverage area.

The statement reads: “In line with its commitment to national peace and security, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) 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 (PYTHON DANCE II).

“The essence of the deployment is to provide the necessary air cover to the ground troops to enhance overall operational cohesion and efficiency.

“It would be recalled the operation began officially on 15 September 2017 and was planned to cover the entire South East Region of the country.

“The wide expanse of the exercise area and the request by the Nigerian Army for close air support made the involvement of the NAF inevitable.

“Exercise EGWU EKE II is aimed at combatting security challenges in the Southeastern part of the country.

“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.”

  8. O my God! were is justice in Nigeria? This is really not right! Airforce in d south east for IPOB? What of the fulani herdsmen that have killed the innocents? why is it that the military is going full strength against people agitating for what they believe in? Is military action in full force now the solution to this and silence the solution to massacre??? Meaningful Nigerians should rise against this! This is not just against the Igbos or IPOB...but this will surely have a ripple effect as Nigeria is gradually loosing its sense of democracy! I weep for this nation...Where is justice?! Where is reason and dialogue? where is the value for the lives citizens? where is the value and respect for our differences? If the government is so afraid of Nnamdi Kanu that it wants to abruptly silence him by all means, I wonder if Nigeria is secured!
