CDS, Service Chiefs Storm Maiduguri Over Insurgency Second Times in one Month.

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

Addressing troops 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’, Major General Farouq Yahaya, had 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.
