RAF Force Protection deployed a short term training team in Nigeria for a few weeks, say the Royal Air Force.
Royal Air Force Police and the Royal Air Force Regiment provided training to the Nigerian Air Force, teaching them various specialist skills and how to deal with various situations.
According to a news release:
“In the first week No. 5 Force Protection Wing completed week one of the Air Force Protection in the Complex Air Ground Environment (CAGE) package to the Nigerian Air Force Regiment and Police. Teaching the students the vulnerability and criticality of Air Power; the complexity of the environment; the external and internal threats to an airbase; and how to mitigate those threats through a range of Active Defence, and Tactical Policing and Security measures.
Week two enabled the Nigerian Air Force Police with learning about the protection of their critical assets and the role of Air Transport Security, both aspects being key to enabling successful and effective Air Operations. For the Nigerian Air Force Regiment this has started with learning about the Ground Defence Area, and how they can dominate the area around their Air Bases to protect their assets and deny their adversaries the freedom of movement to conduct attacks.”
