Abuja - The Senate has commended the Nigeria Armed Forces on their successful operations against terrorists in the North Eastern parts of the country.
The commendation came following an order raised by Senator Maina Ma’aji Lawal.
He said the Military had successfully liberated Mugunu, Baga and Damasak among other communities in the North East.
“The effort is ongoing and it is important that it should be appreciated,” Lawal said.
