Bauchi State Governor, Sen Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has called for support and synergy by the Officers and Men of the Special Operations Command (SOC) of Nigerian Air Force NAF, Bauchi in the fight against insecurity in the Bauchi State.

He was speaking when the Air Officer Commanding (AOC) of the Special Operations Command, AVM EE Effiong visited him in his Office at the Government House on Thursday.

The Governor said that constant monitoring of the troops will greatly help to minimize the activities of bandits and kidnappers terrorizing various communities across the state.

Bala Mohammed identified some flash points in the state to include Ningi, Toro, Alkaleri and other local government areas, asking the Nigerian Air Force to intensify efforts in providing air surveillance to contain the security challenges there.

According to him, “We are a workers’ state and our people are farmers and they need to go to the farm and we will provide you with all the necessary support to face the security challenges.”

Air Officer Commanding the Nigerian Air Force Special Operations Command Bauchi, Air Vice Marshal E Effiong had earlier said that the purpose of the visit was to formally introduce himself as the Air Operations Commanding Officer of the Nigerian Air Force.

He appreciated the Governor for his support to the Nigerian Air Force and other security agencies operating in the country and pledged the partnership of the state government in achieving success.

According to him, “Your Excellency, you can count on our support when it comes to security issues, we are always ready to support you and your administration.”
