“The Nigerian troops that trained as a unit on counter-terrorism in Pakistan were drawn from the Nigerian Army, Navy and Air Force in line with the concept of the force generation. The personnel cut across all the religions as enshrined in the Nigerian Constitution and all the geopolitical zones. It is not an isolated training programme but an existing and continuous exercise.” (Channels TV)
