KADUNA – A major milestone in the resolve of Nigeria to crush Boko Haram terrorists in the North East was achieved, Monday, with the delivery of four fighter aircraft to the Nigerian government by its Pakistani counterpart.

This came ahead of 21 aircraft approved for procurement by President Muhammadu Buhari to boost the operations of the Nigerian Air Force.

The 21 war planes approved for procurement by the Buhari administration, which delivery are expected by the first quarter of next year, are four helicopters gunships, four medium airlift utility helicopters, three live attack aircraft and ten primary trainers.

The four Super Mushshak aircraft, said to be modernized for modern warfare, delivered to the Nigerian Air Force, yesterday, also arrived ahead of ten others which the Nigerian government asked the Asian country to manufacture and subsequently sell to it for use in the ongoing counter insurgency operations in the North East.
