Buratai visits troops on the Boko Haram frontline








The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, on Wednesday toured troops’ locations in the theatre of operations against Boko Haram in the north east.

In all the locations visited, Buratai interacted with the officers and men.

At Super Camp 1 at Molai and the Special Forces Super Camp 12 in Chabbol near Maiduguri, Buratai expressed his appreciation and that of President Muhammadu Buhari for the troops’ commitment, dedication and sacrifices.

He urged them to do mre to hasten the defeat of insurgency.

He also directed the troops to brace up for the final onslaught against Boko Haram and ISWAP.

The COAS assured the troops that their additional operational needs would be provided in a couple of days, adding that the Army had already taken delivery of more fighting equipment procured by the Federal Government.

“Gentlemen, I’m aware you have conducted many successful operations, you have also suffered setbacks especially in recent times.

“You must ensure it is not repeated. You should prepare adequately for the next phase of the counter insurgency operation in our beloved country.

“Other issues expected of you will be communicated to you by your respective Commanders soon,” he stated.

Another place visited by the COAS is the Forward Operating Base at Alau Dam, in the outskirts of Maiduguri.

He also joined the troops on patrol of Mairimari Forest, southeast of Tamsu Ngamdua in Mafa Local Government Area of Borno State.

The patrol went through Maigilari Forest, east of Tamsu Ngamdua in the southwest of the same Mafa Local Government Area.

These areas are generally known as the favourite routes of terrorists into Maiduguri.

A major highlight of the tour was the inspection of various military stores.

Among the hardwares inspected are artillery, mortar, anti aircraft guns, multi barrel launchers, armoured personnel carriers and many gun trucks.
