Military commander assures Plateau residents of protection

The Commander of the Special Task Force on Jos crisis, David Enetie, has assured Plateau State people of full military protection against attackers in the state.

The STF boss gave the assurance on Tuesday at the Plateau state House of Assembly, while thanking members of a group called United Nigerians against Terrorism, who came to the Plateau State House of Assembly to express satisfaction with the military operations against Boko Haram in North East Nigeria.

The group praised the military over its successes in the fight against insurgency in the North Eastern part of the country.

Some members of the group appealed to the military not to thwart democratic governance, but to work towards ensuring that all Nigerian territories are recovered and the abducted Chibok girls rescued.

Mr. Enetie, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mohammed Majagi, a Brigadier General in the Nigeria Army, assured Plateau residents of full military protection against attacks.

The STF Commander praised President Goodluck Jonathan for equipping the military which he said led to the recent success recorded in trouble states. He stressed that “military will continue to do its best to protect the country’s territorial integrity.”

The Speaker of the State Assembly, Titus Alams in his address to the group appealed to them to be peaceful during and after the forthcoming polls.

Earlier, leader of the group, Redzie Jugo, who is the Plateau State Liaison officer, Kaduna, called on the government to continue motivating the military to be more committed in the fight against Boko Haram.
