The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has launched an offensive operation called ‘Operation Show no Mercy’ on Wednesday, August 3.

According to the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, this move is part of a new plan to combat terrorism in the country.

During the meeting with NAF commanders, Amao tasked the senior air troops to deal with the menace with reloaded efforts.

In a statement issued by the spokesman of the airforce, Edward Gabkwet shortly after the meeting, Amao noted that the operation was to address the rising insecurity in the country.

He also assured that more combat pilots, imagery analysts and other necessary specialties will be trained for maximum delivery.

The statement reads: “We have a responsibility to secure our nation and give our citizens a sense of hope, trust and belonging. Therefore, we must ensure that we stay ahead of the enemy and envisage his next line of action.

“I, therefore, charge you to show no mercy against any terrorist and their accomplices while also denying them the freedom of movement and ease to cause mayhem against innocent Nigerians.”
