Army chief assesses impact of terror

24 March 2014, 15:20

Borno - Chief of Army Staff, General Kenneth Minima, is checking on the deployment and troop’s disposition in various locations of the states worst affected by terror.

Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States have been on the receiving end of the onslaught perpetrated by the Boko Haram insurgents.

The army chief, who is in company of his Airforce counterpart Air Marshal Adesola Amosu, has visited troops who were wounded in the course of the operation in the Military Hospital in Maiduguri.

Commander of the Hospital, Brig General Okeke assured  the army chiefs that most of the wounded soldiers were in stable condition.

Some who have recovered very well expressed their desire to rejoin their units and colleagues in the operation, said Okeke.

The service chiefs are meanwhile undertaking a comprehensive air surveillance of the entire mission area in addition to the direct inspection of some key locations where operations are being conducted.

They told reporters in Maiduguri that they were satisfied with the state and performance of the deployment so far, noting that substantial expectations of the counter terrorist campaign were being achieved.
