Nigerian Air Force wings first female fighter pilots


The Nigerian Air Force on Tuesday inducted 13 new fighter pilots including two women, Kafayat Sanni and Tolulope Arotile.

 They were trained  in the United States  and South Africa.

The new pilots were inducted at the NAF Headquarters, Abuja, on Tuesday in a ceremony attended by the Minister of Women Affairs, Mrs Pauline Tallen.

 They are expected to be deployed in  the North-East to  fight Boko Haram and  for  security operations in other parts of  the country.

The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, said 101 pilots had been inducted since 2015 while another 111 personnel were undergoing training.

Tallen said the new pilots would help  eliminate  the “current security challenges  facing  the North-East and North-West as well as communal clashes, kidnapping and banditry”. (Punch)
