Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, the Chief of Air Staff, revealed that bandits attacking Zamfara State and others are being funded by politicians.
Abubakar has stated this while commissioning Small Arms Shooting Range and personnel quarters at the Air Force Base.
He said: “Some of these groups are being funded, supported and encouraged by certain unpatriotic Nigerians for self-centred political interests.”
Abubakar said air operations in Zamfara and other places were being carefully organized, adding that personnel and assets would soon be deployed to support, “Operation Sharan Daji”.
NAF had deployed about 1,000 special forces and supported other security agencies against threats, he added.
