The Nigerian Air Force has received two additional Diamond-62 aircraft as part of its efforts to intensify ongoing air operations against insecurity in the country.

The new aircraft were received at a ceremony held in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Wednesday.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director, Public Relations and Information, NAF, Air Commodore, Edward Gabkwet.

In his remarks during the ceremony, the Chief of the Air Staff, Hasan Abubakar, noted that the process that culminated in the arrival of the two additional aircraft began about two years ago when the Federal Government appropriated funds for the acquisition of four Diamond-62 aircraft for the NAF.

According to him, out of the four aircraft, the first two aircraft were delivered between February and July 2023 while the remaining two were being received today.

He also noted that the two DA-62 aircraft received earlier in the year have since been deployed to the operating theatres in support of the ongoing efforts to restore peace and stability in troubled areas within the country.
