The Federal Government has procured six more attack helicopters to enhance the fight against insecurity.
Chief Executive Officer of TUSAS, a Turkish aircraft manufacturer, Temel Kotil, on Monday, announced the sale of six T-129 attack helicopters, to Nigeria, on his Twitter handle.
The announcement followed a deal reached with the company by the federal government.
President Tayipp Edorgan of Turkey recently visited Nigeria and this development may not be unconnected to the visit.
The federal government had recently procured A-29 Super Tucano fighter jets from the United States, even as it had also made similar procurements from Russia and other European countries as the war against insurgency intensifies.
The fighter jets are expected to boost the operations of the military in its anti-terrorism war against Boko Haram and splinter group, the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), as well as the bandits and kidnappers in the Northeast and other troubled regions.
