"We can crush Boko Haram" - Chief of Air Staff

The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Adesola Amosu has assured Nigerians that the nation’s Armed Forces have the capacity to crush the Boko Haram insurgency as soon as possible.

He stated this yesterday while receiving the Commandant of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Air Vice Marshal John Ifemeje who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.

A statement yesterday by the Director of Public Relations and Information of the Air Force, Air Commodore Yususf Anas, quoted Amosu as stating that, collaborative efforts are on between his office and that of the Chief of Army Staff, with the view to designing the appropriate approach to effectively counter the onslaught by the rampaging insurgents.

It added that the troops are in high spirits and inspired to crush the insurgents in record time, adding that the officers and men in the front are being motivated to achieve results.

The Air Chief hinted of renewed collaboration with other security agencies “with the aim of effectively tackling the festering insurgency and restoring normalcy to the affected areas.”

Amosu further disclosed that the Armed Forces were already thinking of post insurgency plans and strategising on how to keep the place clean, to avoid a relapse to the killing spree.

He, however, posited that the task in the envisaged post insurgency era would require more technology-based platforms.

The Air Chief called for commitment of and sacrifice from members of the Armed Forces, as the Federal Government continues to provide funding and support for the campaign.
