The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai has relocated fully to the North East zone of the country where he is overseeing and directing the overall operation in the theatre and other Nigerian Army operations across the country.
According to Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Sagir Musa, Gen Buratai said that he would be with them through the nooks and crannies of the theatre.
He stated this while addressing troops of Special Super Camp Ngamdu in Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State.
Musa recalled that the COAS had been on operational tour to troops’ locations in the North East Theatre of Operation since Saturday the 4th of April, 2020.
“During the tour, he was at the Army Super Camp 1 at Mulai and the Special Forces Super Camp 12 at Chabbol near Maiduguri on Wednesday 8 April 2020 where he interacted with the officers and addressed the troops respectively,” Musa said.
The Army spokesman added that the COAS was also at the Forward Operations Base at Alau Dam, and also personally led the troops on patrol round Mairimari and Maigilari Forests.
He said the Nigerian Army reassured Nigerians that it was highly committed to protecting all law-abiding citizens and defending our territorial integrity.
“Members of the public are requested to note that there is no any form of insecurity that cannot be surmounted, and the Boko Haram/ISWAP’s terrorism will also end in the nearest future,” Musa added.
