Nigerian Air Force deploys helicopters to ward off looters in Abuja



The Nigeria Air Force on Tuesday, deployed three helicopters to tackle and stop looters that invaded the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp in Kubwa, Abuja earlier today.

According to reports, the helicopters were seen around 10am hovering around the orientation camp.

The Nigeria Army had also deployed soldiers to the scene as some military trucks were seen heading to the Kubwa axis of the FCT on Tuesday morning.

It was learnt that hoodlums hatched a plan to attack the NYSC camp on Monday evening after returning from the attack of a palliative warehouse in Gwagwalada.

The hoodlums were said to have arrived at the camp a little late because the rice had been moved away from the camp by security personnel, when they learnt about the impending invasion.

When the invaders forcefully gained entrance into the camp, there was no rice, but there were other non-edible items such as plastic chairs, tables, television sets and mattresses that are meant for corps members.

Security operatives were said to have traced the looted items to Kubwa village market which is adjacent to the orientation camp.
