The Nigerian Air Force would soon launch an aerial operation to protect critical infrastructure and the people of the South South.
Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar made this known at the quarterly route march for personnel of the Nigerian Air Force in Abuja on Saturday.
He charged personnel of the Force to serve the country with patriotism.
He said, “Be ready that at any time you are called to serve in the defence of the Nigerian state; you will be willing to do so out there and do it with every sense of patriotism.
“The challenges in the North East have been substantially addressed, so we are not too worried now about the North East.
“Our main focus will now be to protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria in the South South and to ensure that oil and gas infrastructure are not destroyed by any group or group of individuals.
“Very soon we will launch an exercise in the South South also and the aim of the exercise is to protect our people and to protect the infrastructure of Nigeria.”
