The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has called on troops of Operation Lafiya Dole to remain disciplined, dedicated and vigilant while discharging their military duties. The soldiers were also urged to be patient, calm, and to continue with their good work and sustain the standard of discipline they have already set.

The COAS gave the charge during his routine operational visit to troops deployed at Pulka and Gwoza in Borno State.

Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka, said in a statement on Sunday that the COAS who was on an assessment visit to see troops in the ongoing operation Deep Push  to clear the remnants of Boko Haram Terrorists around Sambisa forest, was represented by the Chief of Administration (Army), Major General M Alkali.

“He commended the troops on the successes recorded in the ongoing campaign against insurgency in the North East. The Army chief urged them to hasten up in the hunt for the leaders of Boko Haram while assuring them of Army Headquarters support on the fight against insurgency.  He further stated that the dependants of fallen heroes will be promptly paid all entitlements due for the deceased to their next of kin.

“Nigerian Army appreciates your sacrifices to Nigeria nation.  History will not forget you for all you have done to protect the territorial integrity of our country. We will continue to provide you with all you need to end this war so that displaced persons of this region can return to their respective communities. As for our troops who paid the supreme price, we will continue to provide support to the families they left behind,” he assured.

The COAS was accompanied on the visit by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu and some staff officers of the Division. 

The Commander, 26 Task Force Brigade in Gwoza, Brigadier General Adeyinka Laguda received the COAS on arrival and briefed him at the  Brigade Headquarters.
