Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya has advised retired and discharged officers to be wary of fraudsters to avoid losing their entitlements cheaply.

 
He gave the advice at the regimental dinner in honour of retired officers for colonels and ranks below in Abuja.
 
Represented by Director, Personnel Services, Army Headquarters, Maj.-Gen. Gbemiga Adesina, the COAS urged the affected officers to be vigilant.
 
He described the personnel as fine crop of citizens, who “meritoriously served and contributed immensely to the growth and development of the Nigerian Army and the country at large.”
 
According to him, it is only befitting that this ceremony is arranged for all “you gallant patriots, as a similar ceremony was held in this same venue”.

He restated that retirement remains a phase of life, which most of the serving military personnel, hopefully, pray to enjoy in a gratifying and peaceful manner after giving their best to the system.
