Airforce finally admits sending aircrafts to Numan

The Nigerian Air Force, on Tuesday, said it had deployed two fighter aircraft – an Alpha Jet and an EC 135 attack helicopter – to the troubled communities of Adamawa State, to bomb what it called “hideouts of miscreants” in the villages.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, confirmed the deployment to The PUNCH, noting that the bombardment was “warning shots” rather than shooting to kill.

It was reported on Tuesday that scores of people were killed in Dong and Lawura villages in the Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa State when rampaging Fulani militia attacked some communities, burning down no fewer than five villages.
