The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu said following directives by President Buhari, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has begun the deployment of fighter aircraft to Katsina, the airport with the closest proximity to Zamfara State for immediate and effective response.

He said “This had not been possible in the past because there was no fuel depot facility in Katsina, but NAF has devised a way around the problem.”

He said the President has also authorised the engagement by NAF, of advanced satellite surveillance technology to help in accurate detection of movement and locations of the bandits.

“Following directives from the President, at the weekend, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, was in Gusau where he met the Deputy Governor of the State,” he said.

He said during the visit, the CAS reiterated the President’s pledge never to abandon victims of attacks to their fate.
