He said that the Special Forces which would mainly be ground forces would leave on May 10.

“Similarly, we have over 150 Special Forces that are presently operating in Zamfara State to tackle issues of banditry and other security challenges in the state.

“On May 10, we are deploying another 150 special forces which are mainly ground forces to Taraba State in order to add value to what is happening there in terms of security challenges,” he said.

Abubaka said that he was in the state for the ground breaking ceremony of the newly approved Ground Training Command Headquarters of the Nigerian Air Force in the South East.

“We believe that the efforts we are putting up now will provide further security for our people to be able to pursue their legitimate duties and aspirations without hindrance,” he said.

Responding, Ugwuanyi commended the Air Force for its roles in providing security to Nigerians along with other security agencies.

The governor also commended them for establishing the command in the state and called for more robust relationship between the state government and the force.
