Abuja (Flowerbudnews): Nigeria’s fight against  bandits, kidnappers and terrorists is set to be boosted with six M-346 fighter aircraft by the end of 2024.

Flowerbudnews reports that the delivery is expected to form phase one of a total of 24 aircraft that will be delivered in four phases, an information disseminated on the X handle of the Special Adviser to President Tinubu on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga disclosed.

The acquisition of the combat aircrafts was part of federal government efforts to bolster the effectiveness of Nigerian Air Force.

It disclosed that Nigeria had also secured an agreement for the Italian aircraft manufacturers for maintenance support for a minimum of 25 years, thereby reducing fears of possible mismanagement in the long term.

The aircraft offers prospects of close air support, air interdiction, and tactical reconnaissance as the Airforce continues to effectively decimate terrorists and insurgents across the country. (Flowerbudnews)
