Key excerpts:

  • He charged formation commanders in the theatre of operations to imbibe the spirit of in-theatre training based on terrain and the changing “tactics of adversary.”
  • “Therefore, the need for regular improvement on the existing capacity of the Nigerian Army to be able to deal with the present and future security threats is imperative.”
  • “Since 2015, we have been holding series of exercises,” adding that the exercises were to reassure Nigerians that the army and other security agencies were concerned about their safety and security.
