The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has since Monday commenced rotation of troops deployed on OPERATION SAFE HAVEN in Plateau State. The aim is to boost the morale of the troops by withdrawing those who have spent in excess of 6 months from the theatre of operation to reunite them with their families.
The injection of fresh troops also add to the efficiency and effectiveness of the internal security operation. Troops are being airlifted by C-130H aircraft from Jos, and vice versa, to their various units located in different parts of the country.
Locations covered by the ongoing airlift operation include Benin, Calabar Uyo, Port Harcourt and Enugu. Others are Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Kainji, Minna and Makurdi. The rest are Ilorin, Ibadan and Lagos.
