To effectively address the security situation in the Niger Delta region, the Nigerian Airforce has upgraded its forwarding Base in Calabar to a 207 Special Mobility Unit.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Mohammed Umar stated this in Calabar while commissioning single officers’ quarters erected for the officers that would man the unit.

According to the Chief of Air Staff, “in my calculation, for the overall national security and defence, I decided that the Nigerian Airforce needed to pay more attention to the Niger Delta region – the reason is simple, the Niger Delta Region is the goose that lays the golden egg and is deserving of a more pronounced presence of NAF.”
