NAF immortalises late flying officer Bayero
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has immortalised late Flying Officer Abdulrahman Bayero, a Regiment Officer, who died in a firefight with armed bandits at Kawan Pole Waya, near Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State on 22 July 2019, by naming two newly constructed blocks of 10 x Single-Bedroom Officers’ Transit Quarters at the Regiment Training Centre (RTC) in Kaduna in his honour.
The new residential accommodation were commissioned yesterday by the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, who said the NAF has trained over 4,500 Regiment/Special Forces Personnel from 2015 till date.
Speaking through the Chief of Policy and Plans, Headquarters NAF, Air Vice Marshal Napoleon Bali, the CAS stated that the rationale behind the rapid capacity building of the NAF Regiment Specialty was premised on the need to reposition the Service to meet the emerging security challenges.
Members of late Flying Officer Bayero’s family, including his wife, Mrs Zainab Bayero, as well as his parents, Mallam and Mrs Hassan Bayero, and siblings attended the ceremony.
Also present at the event were the Chief of Training and Operations, along with other Branch Chiefs and Directors from Headquarters NAF, the AOC Air Training Command (ATC) and Principal Staff Officers ATC and GTC, as well as Commandants and Commanders of co-located NAF Units in Kaduna, amongst others.
