In continuation of efforts to enhance security in Kaduna State and its environs, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in conjunction with other security agencies, has intensified aerial surveillance over identified hotspots and flashpoints in the State while sustaining its air patrol along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway.

In a statement, the director Public Relations and Information NAF, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola noted that some of the areas covered in the surveillance missions include Gonin Gora, Kajuru, Kujama, Kasuwar Maganin and surrounding settlements.

Daramola said: “the air patrols, on the other hand, are focused on portions of Abuja-Kaduna Highway, which had hitherto been susceptible to the activities of armed robbers and kidnappers.”

 He said it may be recalled that NAF conducted a “Show of Force” Exercise in Katari village, one of the identified criminal hotspots along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway, on 9 February 2019.
