The Depot Nigerian Army says it will conduct a final bush exercise tagged: “Exercise Kungama’’ for 77 Regular Recruits Intake from September 17 and September 30.

Adekunle Adeyemi-Akinyele, Acting Assistant Director, Army Public Relations of the Depot Nigerian Army, made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday in Zaria, Kaduna State.

“The recruits of 77 Regular Intake would be having their final bush exercise, nick-named “Exercise Kungama’’ from Monday, 17 to Sunday 30, September, 2018 at Falgore Forest Base Camp along Tudun Wada-Falgore-Saminaka Road.
