The Nigeria Air Force (NAF) has deployed three helicopters to tackle looters that descended on National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp in Kubwa, an Abuja suburb in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in the early hours of yesterday.
According to reports, the helicopters were seen around 10:00 am hovering around the orientation camp. It was unclear if the helicopters touched down in the premises or the identity of the security agents they conveyed.
The Nigeria Army also deployed soldiers to the scene as a number of military trucks were seen heading towards the direction yesterday morning.
It was gathered that the hoodlums could have formed some intelligence gathering teams whose duty is to carry out an investigation on certain locations with COVID-19 palliative.
Security operatives were understood to have stormed the market in search of the stolen items. But they were resisted by hoodlums who mill around the market.
