The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has launched a ‘See Something Say Something’ initiative in a strategic move to elicit more support from the civil populace and create more security awareness. The initiative was launched at a security sensitisation lecture organised for residents of Yola, Adamawa State.

According to the NAF Director Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, “The objective is to get the civil populace to share information with security agencies or report the activities of suspected persons or members of the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) group. The initiative recognises the collective role and responsibility of the people, military and civil alike, to fighting terrorism. It is thus a new approach by the NAF to enhance the effectiveness of the on-going counter insurgency operation in the North-Eastern part of the country.”

Alonge said in a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, “Identifying terrorist activities as senseless and inhuman, the lecture pointed out that it could only bring pain, regrets, poverty and underdevelopment to the people and their community. As such, the participants were urged to be actively involved in the on-going counter-terrorism campaign, and to help spread the message by educating their wards with a view to bringing all hands on deck to defeat the terrorists.

“The new initiative raises the need for the civil populace to be more security conscious and to report observed suspicious behaviours to security forces. The initiative calls for increased human intelligence by employing the individuals to know their neighbours, and to question strangers in the communities. As part of security tips, it enjoins persons having uncompleted buildings in remote locations to regularly inspect such buildings, and to be wary of unidentified luggage, abandoned vehicles and unplanned gatherings in public places.”
