He made this known at the inauguration of one block of 20 rooms’ transit accommodation at 271 NAF Detachment Birnin-Gwari.
The Air Chief said the establishment of the detachment had helped to reduce crimes in Birnin-Gwari, adding that the deployment of more troops would strengthen the onslaught against bandits, kidnappers and terrorists.
