Suicide Bombing Will Soon Become A Thing Of The Past – Air Force

suicide bomb vestThe Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Tactical Air Command of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in Benue State, Air Vice Marshal Rufus Adeniyi Ojuawo, yesterday expressed confidence that suicide bombing in the country would soon become a thing of the past.
Ojuawo said that the tide had changed in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgents in recent times, such that the military had recorded appreciable successes.
“The tide has changed. For the military, before now, we were not suited for the kind of war we were fighting. As it is now, we are winning because the situation has changed and we are pursuing them [insurgents] to everywhere. For me, suicide bombing will become a thing of the past”, he said.
The AOC, who spoke to reporters shortly after the command’s 2015 annual 10km walk/jogging, added that the military at the moment was doing very well at the battle front, as it was also beginning to gain the trust of the public, which was not there before now.
AVM Ojuawo noted that the military was doing a lot to nip the trend of suicide bombing in the bud and appealed to the general public to be a bit patient, assuring that adequate logistics was now available to contain the situation, just as he advised officers and men of the Air Force to continually keep fit by taking sports seriously.
Earlier, the Benue State commissioner of Sports, Mr. Lawrence Onoja Jr., congratulated the military for the fight against the insurgents and disclosed plans by the state government to partner with them in developing sports in the state.
