The Nigerian Air Force has rotated members of its ground forces fighting alongside troops of the Nigerian Army who have spent over six months at Operation Lafiya Dole in the North-East.

This is contained in a statement signed by Air Commodore Dele Alonge, Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air force and issued to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

According to the statement, the troop rotation is in line with the usual practice, aimed at re-invigorating the minds of the personnel and their commitment to the on-going fight against the Boko Haram.

“By replacing the weary hands with fresh ones, the rotation also has the corollary effect of morale boasting for the troops.”

The statement explained that the subsisting troops had been airlifted with the NAF C-130H aircraft from the theatre of operation to their various units.

It stated that during the ceremony, the Commander of 79 Composite Group Maiduguri, Air Commodore, Chris Egwoba commended the efforts of the gallant airmen and wished them success in their future endeavours.

It also expressed the commendation of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar to the troops. (NAN)
