According to The Nation Newspaper, the Air Force chief applauded the Chief of Logistics and Director of Works for doing a good job concerning the project.

He added that the two blocks were named after two of its officers, Flag Officer A. J. Layelmenson and Squadron Leader, B.B. Ado who died in active service in Mali.

“The young officers protected our national interests, hence the need to immortalise them. We are remembering these fallen heroes by naming the blocks of flats after them,” he said.

Lawal Alawo, the Air Force Chief of Administration, earlier said the commissioning of the flats was good evidence that the leadership accorded a high priority to the welfare of its officials.
