The Nigerian Army has established a Media Centre in Maiduguri, capital of Borno State and hotbed of the war against Boko Haram insurgency. 

“The media centre is based on the directive of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai,” says Colonel Tukur Gusau, Media Coordinator Operation LAFIYA DOLE. “The aim of establishing the media centre was to provide real time and accurate information and to provide avenue for a better interaction with the media particularly on military operations in the North East,” he adds.

Addressing the journalists yesterday during the commissioning of the centre, the Theater Commander Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Major General Yusha’u Mahmood Abubakar, urged journalists to use the media centre to clear areas they are in doubt instead of relying on unknown sources to get information on Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

The Theatre Commander, represented by the General Officer Commanding 7 Division Nigerian Army, Major General Lamidi Adeosun, praised the role of the media in the fight against terrorism and insurgency. He described the media as key partner in the ongoing efforts of ending terrorism in Nigeria. Gen Abubakar thanked all the media organisations for educating and informing the populace about the happenings in the theater of operation.
