Air Force Set To Bombard Militants, Boko Haram With New Mi-35m Attack Choppers by dre11(m): 8:48pm On Apr 18, 2017
By Wale Odunsi


Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to induct the two newly acquired Mi-35M attack helicopters into its inventory as it prepares to carry out renewed aerial bombardment of Boko Haram terrorists.

The Russian jets will also be used to bombard militants terrorizing Lagos and Niger Delta creeks.

Findings by DAILY POST show that the Mi-35M is powered by two Klimov VK-2500 turbo-shaft engines.

It has an updated navigation and avionics suite which features multi-function coloured displays and target sighting systems, including a thermal imager and laser rangefinder.

Apart from the attack role, the Mi-35M can be used for landing or transporting up to 8 fully-equipped paratroopers.

On Tuesday, Chairman of Organising Committee, NAF DAY Celebrations 2017, Air Vice Marshal (AVM), Isiaka Amao, told newsmenthat more of the latest version of Mi-35M are expected from Russia, while trained pilots will be deployed in conflict zones across the country.

He noted that the Air Force has expanded their scope of operations beyond the North Eastern enclaves of Boko Haram, having almost achieved their mission in the area.

His words: “Two Mi-35M are to be inducted and more are being expected. Others are actually on their way.

“We are focusing beyond the North East not just because we have decimated the Boko Haram terrorists but because there are other security challenges in other parts of the country.

“So we are looking at the country as a whole not just limited to the Boko Haram issue.

“The Mi-35M is an attack helicopters with precision strike and night vision capability. It is a new version of Mi-35M. It is one of the best in the world and all weather.

“We have been able to sniff out Boko Haram from their enclaves, also in South South we have been able to limit the activities of the Niger Delta militants.

“There is also appreciable activities in the North West and North Central where we have limited the activities of the herdsmen and cattle rustling,” he added.

Speaking further, Amao added that the 2017 NAF Day Celebration is on the theme “Employment of Air Power for Enduring National Security”.

Amao also listed series of activities slated to mark the celebration to include: medical outreach, Air weapons meet, gala night, ceremonial parade and winging of new pilots.

Others are presentation of colours to Special Operations Command, induction of the Mi-35M as well as aerial and static display.

The organising committee chairman also said that Medical outreach programme will be conducted throughout the period of the celebration for people living within the immediate host communities around NAF Bases.

“This offers the unique opportunity to give back to the society. It is also a viable medium to appreciate Nigerians for their support and goodwill over the years,” he added.

You're right. I think freedom of information has its own disadvantages too. Who knew the US was going to drop the biggest bomb on ISIS last week? Nobody until we heard.

Our fight against Boko Haram has been sometimes thwarted by over zealous press and bloggers rushing and looking for news content to post.

Professor Isa Hussaini of Faculty of Pharmacy University of Maiduguri wrote:

The blame for what Nigeria has become falls on you and me. Not Buhari, not Jonathan, not Obasanjo and definitely not Abacha.

Our wickedness stinks to the heavens as we go about our daily lives, pulling down everyone and everything to become rich. We import substandard products, fake drugs and expired baby food unfit for human consumption and we have the nerve to complain about leadership?

We even steal from widows, orphans, and refugees. We take their food and sell it for profit. No conscience. Nothing is sacred. No one is spared. We build substandard roads, schools, houses, hospitals, all for profit at the expense of human life;an invaluable item which all our profit and contract sum cannot buy.

One would think this behavior is reserved for urchins but it would surprise you that this is the character of many decent looking people who appear to be normal but are not any better than Boko Haram members. They are church members, Muslims, husbands, wives and sadly youths.

We pervert justice and pretend we do not know right from wrong just to serve our selfish interests. Slave traders pale in comparison to what we do to ourselves. We are wickedness personified. So much hatred flows in our blood and we transfer it to our children. It's evident in what we say and do.

We have fasting and prayer sessions all year long, night vigils and deliverance when the actual problem is us. We simply cannot learn to love others . It is me, me, me. That is all that ever matters. It is sickening. Anyone who cannot love has no business in politics, Government and in Nigeria. Until we understand this, we will continue on this path of destruction.

I can Change, You can Change, They can Change and We can Change by Sharing and Spreading this message. Change starts with Me.
