The Unsung Nigeria Air Force Women Of War

The video, released by Ibikunle Daramola, director of public relations information, NAF, documents the increasing active participation of female officers in various departments in the force.
Kofi Annan, United Nations former secretary general, once said “women combatants are often invisible, leading to the obliteration of their vital roles.”

Another female, TO Arotile, is said to be undergoing training on flying helicopter training in South Africa.
