The Nigerian Air Force said it has received two of its newly acquired attack helicopters meant to be added to the existing fleet battling terrorism in the country.

A statement by the Nigerian Air Force spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola during a visit to front-line troops, said the delivery of the two Agusta 109 power attack helicopters was to enhance the fight against insurgency in the country.

The statement added that the helicopters were being assembled and would be inducted during the forthcoming 55th anniversary celebration of the Air Force.

The statement reminded the troops that there is so much at stake hence the need for troops to clear up remnants of the Boko Haram insurgents from their hideouts.
