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.
