Maiduguri - The Military has commenced the deployment of additional staff and hi-technology equipment at the Military Command and Control Centre (MCCC) in Maiduguri.
The deployments are to be completed within 21 days when the MCCC would be fully operational.
Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Acting Director Army Public Relations, said this followed a reconnaissance and an advance team for the establishment of MCCC to Maiduguri and Yola in Borno and Yobe States State respectively last week.

“With the establishment of the Centre, all strategic and operational decisions on the fight against terrorism and insurgency would emanate from the MCCC. This will ensure faster response time; improve situational awareness and better coordination of all stakeholders,” said Usman.
He said the centre would also give the much-needed impetus that would ensure prosecution and successful conclusion of the war against terrorism.
It will also provide the required interface between the Armed Forces of Nigeria and Multi-National Joint Task Force to be deployed at the Lake Chad Basin area at the end of July.
