The Nigerian Air Force, 207 Special Mobility unleashed its men on the hideouts of criminal elements on Calabar waterways according to the Navy.
The 207 Special Mobility Commander, Charles Ohwo revealed today that the raid was in compliance with the directive of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu after the recent series of kidnapping and criminal activities in Calabar.
He said: “Of late, you noticed that in Cross River, especially in Calabar, there has been an increase in kidnapping and theft cases spearheaded by militants, the latest being the attack on Marine Police. The Chief of Air Staff directed the Mobility Command to ensure that the militants do not patrol along Calabar waterways again and to reassure the people that the Air Force is always able and ready.
“So the display is just to assure the people of our combat readiness and we recorded successes,” Ohwo said.
