Boko Haram: Service Chiefs Storm Maiduguri, laud Operation Lafiya Dole

As the military intensified the fight against insurgency in Borno, the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, and Service Chiefs, have arrived in Maiduguri, for the second time in one month to assess the situation on ground.

Addressing troops, on Saturday, at the headquarters of “Operation Lafiya Dole” in Maiduguri, Irabor lauded them for the successes recorded.

He also commended them for their commitment and resilience, adding that there was a mandate given by the President and Commander in Chief that must be accomplished.

“What I need to let you know is that we have a mandate from him (president) and that mandate must be achieved.

“So, this is the reason why we are working assiduously. All issues of violence and insecurity, especially within the area of Operation Lafiya Dole, must come to an end,” Irabor said.

Earlier, the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen. Farouq Yahaya, lauded the CDS and service chiefs for the visits, saying that it would boost the morale of the troops.

“We are encouraged by this effort of the CDS and service chiefs who have been in touch every hour.,” Yahaya said.

He thanked the CDS and service chiefs for their prompt response in addressing requests from the theatre and assured them of the troops’ commitment to deliver on assigned tasks.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the CDS and service chiefs also visited the 7 Division Military Hospital, to interact with wounded soldiers receiving treatment. (NAN)
