Nigerian Airforce denies deploying 100 aircraft to search for Dapchi girls

The Nigerian airforce has denied deploying 100 aircraft to search for the missing Dapchi school girls.

Below is a statement issued on Wednesday signed by the Director of airforce public relations, AVM Olatokunbo Adesanya;

“The attention of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been drawn to a statement being circulated to the effect that 100 NAF aircraft had been deployed in search of the missing Dapchi girls.

While paying a courtesy call on the Executive Governor of Yobe State, in company of the Chief of the Air Staff, on 27 February 2018, the National Security Adviser, Mohammed Monguno, indeed spoke about the number of sorties so far conducted by NAF aircraft in the course of searching for the missing girls within a stated period. Obviously, the number of sorties does not equate the number of aircraft deployed.”
