Insecurity: Nigerian Air Force helicopters undertake aerial patrol of Abuja-Kaduna railway

<![CDATA[The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has extended its aerial patrol and surveillance of the Abuja-Kaduna highway to include the railway line as part of the ongoing effort to protect lives and safeguard critical national assets within the affected areas.

The latest patrol and surveillance efforts, according to the Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, in a statement on Sunday, cover both railway terminus in Abuja and Kaduna and environs using NAF helicopters.

Given the security situation in the North West region of the country and the usual trend of crime increase towards the end of the year, the NAF in        August 2016 commenced extensive aerial patrol of Abuja-Kaduna highway, including Abuja metropolis, Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road, Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road, Falgore Forest as well as Minna and environs to checkmate criminal activities such as armed robbery, cattle rustling and kidnapping.]]>
