1. Hopefully, Nigeria wil now take stock of what it takes to fund and arm a modern army with the most modern weapons. The crop of senior officers at defense headquarters should be retired as they lack the training and knowledge of modern weapons and communication systems. Their lack of preparedness borders on incompetence and dereliction of duties. They lack knowledge of special forces and it’s deployment. Nigeria’s military doctrine, weapons preparedness is stuck in WWII mentality. A billion dollar tab to fight BHT is not enough to equip the Air Force alone into a modern fighting force. They lack knowledge of what modern fighting forces need.The US is probably right in refusing the sale of Apache gunships for lack of operational skill set that should have been developed over time.
