The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to induct its newly acquired T-129 ATAK helicopters and King Air 360i aircraft on 6 February 2024 at the NAF Base, Makurdi, Benue State.

According to Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, NAF spokesman, the induction ceremony will be performed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, whom the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, will represent.

The event no doubt signifies a major boost to Nigeria’s national defence capability under the current dispensation.

“Specifically, the new platforms would enhance NAF’s firepower as it jointly confronts the various security challenges in the country, alongside sister services and other security agencies,” Gabkwet said in a terse statement sent to journalists.
