The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has simulated a counter terrorist exercise at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
The exercise codenamed “EXERCISE STEEL DOME” follows on the heels of recent terrorist attacks in some major airports around the world, with the aim to ascertain NAF’s readiness to respond to occurrence of terrorist attack in any of the nation’s airports
The exercise scenario was based on terrorist attack on an airport, and effort to retake the airport from the terrorists and restore normalcy through insertion and extraction of Special Forces operating in conjunction with other organic security forces and organisations. The exercise objectives are to enable the NAF practice both individual and group skills in planning, coordination and execution of counter-terrorist operations, as well as understand the requirements and challenges involved in the coordination and conduct of counter terrorist operations in concert with other security agencies and organisations among others.
