“While we are recognizing the efforts of the Nigerian Airforce, we also want to further make an appeal to the Chief of Air Staff to approve the deployment of the Nigeria Air Special Forces to help man the Abuja-Kaduna road, with also a detachment in the Kajuru area where we have continued to face ongoing security challenges,” he stated.

The Kaduna State governor believes that the Airforce has all it takes to rid the nation of all criminal elements in collaboration with the ground troops.

He also demanded from the Air Chief for more personnel to be deployed on the road and in Kajuru Local Government Area to curtail the menace of kidnapping and other security challenges.
