The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has relocated to the North East to oversee and coordinate troops of the Nigerian Army in the counter-insurgency war against Boko Haram and Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists.
The Nigerian Army Headquarters in a press statement on Saturday said Buratai would also oversee other army operations in other parts of the country.
According to the statement, Buratai on Friday addressed troops of the Special Super Camp, Ngamdu in the Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State, where he said he would remain with them to combat the terrorists.
“The Chief of Army Staff has relocated fully to the North-East where he is overseeing and directing the overall operation in the theatre and other army operations across the country.
“The army wishes to reassure Nigerians that it is highly committed to protecting law abiding citizens and defending our territorial integrity,” the statement said.
