GOC charges troops to dislocate, clear Boko Haram remnants
The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Brig-Gen. Victor Ezugwu, has charged troops of Operation Lafiya Dole to dislocate and clear remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast.
Ezugwu gave the charge yesterday morning, while addressing troops deployed to Sabon Gari community in Damboa Council of Borno
On Tuesday, the military post at Sabon Gari was attacked by insurgents, leading to the loss of eight soldiers, along with arms and ammunition at the base.
But Ezugwu urged the troops to remain vigilant and alert while conducting their routine patrols and duties within their areas of responsibility.
“My visit to this military base was at the instance of report of Boko Haram terrorists attack on the troops’ location in Sabon Gari. I commend your professionalism in the discharge of your duties, particularly your gallantry in repelling several Boko Haram attacks on their locations.”
He empathised with the injured and assured them of adequate medical treatment, adding: “I enjoined you to pray for the souls of departed colleagues and in turn take revenge by fighting to end this Boko Haram war in the northeast.”
He, however, noted that despite the attacks, the community was a beehive of activities as a result of return of peace and expressed delight that the people were going about their lawful businesses and farming activities.
“We vowed to continue with the onslaught against Boko Haram terrorist until they surrender to Nigerian troops,” he assured.
