Insecurity : US Warns Nigeria On Use Of Super Tucano

The United States has warned Nigeria that the use of the Super Tucano must comply with international norms as articulated in the United Nations Charter.

The US gave the warning on Thursday as the Nigerian military was set to deploy the Super Tucano aircraft in the North-West and North-Central after the Federal Government officially designated bandits in the regions as terrorists,

The US while advising Nigeria said the Federal Government should not  deploy the aircraft in operations that encroach on traditional law enforcement role which is under police authority.

Punch reported that the Acting Director, Defence Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida, allayed fears of civilian casualties during the deployment of  the fighter jets against bandits in the forests.
