The Federal Government has taken delivery of two fighter helicopters to boost the ongoing fight against insurgency and banditry in the country.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, disclosed this when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the Security Council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Abubakar also announced that additional fighter helicopters and other military hardware would be supplied to the nation’s armed forces to enhance their capacity in the battlefields.

According to Abubakar, Nigeria is collaborating with its neighbors to completely end the Boko Haram insurgency. He, however, appealed to all Nigerians to contribute their quota towards addressing security challenges troubling some parts of the country.
