Troops urged to do more against Boko Haram

17 August 2015, 09:50 Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno, has encouraged troops in the Northeast to intensify the fight against the Boko Haram terrorists ravaging the region.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Acting Director Public Relations in the Nigerian Army, said the encouragement followed continuation of his operational visit to the North-East.

After paying a courtesy call on Yobe State Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, the National Security Adviser inspected the newly established Army Headquarters Logistics Base, Tactical headquarters of 3 Division and inspected military hardwares and equipment.

The NSA thereafter addressed troops where he commended their efforts in the war against terrorists and enjoined them to always dedicate themselves to assigned tasks and responsibilities.

He also emphasised on alertness and adherence to professional ethics of the military profession.

Meanwhile, leaders of the armed forces, including the military, air force and police, accompanied Monguno during his tour of Damaturu, Yobe State this past weekend.
