The Buhari-led administration of the federal government of Nigeria has reportedly procured six attack helicopters from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI).



The helicopter, T129, has the capacity to perform well in hot temperatures and high altitudes which will enable the military to fight gallantly against terrorism that is ravaging the country.

According to Defense News, Temel Kotil, general manager of TAI, said the company will deliver a batch of six T129 attack helicopters.

In the meantime, Mr Kotil did not mention the exact date the helicopters will be delivered to Nigeria.

The development is coming amid rising insecurity in many parts of the country, including the federal capital territory (FCT).

Nigeria and Turkey have signed a series of bilateral agreements in the past few years.

In October 2021, President Muhammadu Buhari met Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his Turkish counterpart, at the state house in the FCT.
