The Mobility Command of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in Bayelsa has pledged more collaboration with other security agencies operating in the state to fully curtail the security challenges across the country.
Air Vice-Marshall Napoleon Bali, Air Officer Commanding AOC of Headquarters, NAF Mobility Command made the assertion in Yenagoa during its 2018 fourth quarter route march exercise.
The 10-kilometre route march, which witnessed huge turnout of personnel took them from the NAF Base to the AIT-Elebele roundabout before returning to the base.
Bali explained that the exercise was designed to boost the physical, mental or psychological fitness of members of the Armed Forces.
On the security situation in Bayelsa and the nation at large, the AOC said the command would continue to work with security agencies in the state, noting that the route march exercise was a welcome development to boost the officers fitness.
"In our immediate environment, Yenagoa, we are much more conscious of the scourging security situations in addition to our mandate of tactical and strategic airlift in support of military operation.
"We shall continue to do our best to ensure that NAF Special Forces collaborate with other security agencies in Bayelsa to secure Yenagoa and its environs.
“I urge the citizens not to be afraid of any security threat; they should continue to go about their normal business while we are collaborating with the sister agencies and add value to what are already on ground in Bayelsa.
