The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has said the lessons he learnt from the Bangladesh National Defence had been very useful in fighting terrorism in the North East.
Buratai made this known in Lagos on Saturday when he received the Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Abu Shafiul Huq.
He said the success being recorded in the fight against Boko Haram was partly due to the lessons he received in the country.
“The Bangladesh experience in counter-insurgency is something that I brought to bear in the efforts to rid Nigeria of Boko Haram since my appointment as the Chief of army staff,” he said.
According to him, he attended the Bangladesh National Defence course in 2008.
