Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai

The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has charged troops in the ongoing counter-insurgency operation to brace up in their efforts to defeat terrorism in line with the presidential directive.

This is contained in a statement issued by the acting Army spokesman, Sani Usman.

Mr. Usman said the coming days would be crucial to the operation aimed at eliminating insurgency from parts of the country.

“The next few days will be crucial to `Operation Lafiya Dole’ and it is also crucial to our country Nigeria.

“Our sovereignty as a nation is threatened, the Nigerian Army and indeed the military as the symbol of our nationhood is being challenged.

“Our ability to stand and defeat the Boko Haram terrorists in the next few weeks will determine the future of our country,’’ it said.

Mr. Sani said the military could not afford to lose the fight against insurgency as it was better trained and equipped to win the war.

He said the whole nation was behind the military as it battles insurgency in the North East.

He urged the troops to remain steadfast and courageous in the task of degrading and defeating the terrorists.
