The development of security threats in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has become worrisome and continues to terrorise citizens.
Countries, including the United Kingdom and the United State of America, issued the wake of a terror alert to Nigeria and their citizens that have been in the country for various reasons.
On Saturday, Nigeria was greeted by the Republic of Turkey’s words to deploy drones and helicopters to Nigeria to help the country cope with the fears of insecurity threats.
The Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to Nigeria, Hidayet Bayraktar, disclosed this adding that the drones and helicopters would soon arrive in Nigeria as part of efforts to strengthen the security architecture of the country.
Bayraktar was reported to have made this intention public during the commemoration of the 99th National Day of the Republic of Turkey in Abuja.
He said, “The defence contracts signed between our countries last year marked a historical record.
“Taking this opportunity, I am proud to announce that two of our flagship defence industry platforms, Bayraktar (TB-2) drones and (T-149) ATAK helicopters, are set to arrive in Nigeria.
“We are confident that new Turkish defence products will support the efforts of the Nigerian government and contribute immensely to the peace, prosperity and security of fellow Nigerians,” Bayraktar said.
Turkey 🇹🇷 is not deploying Drones and helicopters, but the Nigerian Army was acquired 6 Bayraktar TB2 drones one of the best armed drones and the Nigerian Airforce as acquired the Atak A129 helicopter gunships one of the best in the world. So he is speaking of Turkiye shipping the arms to Nigeria and how it will help us . But not that Turkiye itself is deploying its own assets.
