The Joint Task-Force (JTF) in Enugu State says it has re-strategised to meet current security challenges and check indiscriminate killings by herdsmen.

The Commander of Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base Enugu, Air Commodore Mahmud Madi, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu vowed to prevent herdsmen attacks in the State.

``As you are aware, just some few days ago we had a problem in one community (Nimbo Community in Uzo-Uwani LGA) where herdsmen were purported to have attacked and several lives were lost.

``Before now, the Nigerian Air Force in conjunction with the (Nigerian) Army and other security agencies formed the Joint Task-Force (JTF) and has worked hard to make sure that that is not repeated.

``And to let people know that we are willing and ready to be able to deter whatever it is that will be here to cause mayhem.’’

Madi, who is also the Commander of NAF 95 Helicopter Combat Training Group, Enugu, said that the JTF was ready to confront criminals and trouble-makers in Enugu State from all fronts.

He called on the residents of the state to cooperate by reporting and giving useful information about crimes and criminal elements in the state.
