Conduct Decisive Offensive Operations to end Boko Haram/ISWAP Terrorism in Northeast Nigeria, COAS tells Troops

Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Major General Faruk Yahaya, has charged troops in the Theatre of Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) to conduct decisive offensive operations in the fight against Boko Haram/Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists in Northeast Nigeria.

According to a statement by Nigerian Army Spokesperson, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, General Yahaya also told the troops of Sector 3 Operation HADIN KAI/Multinational Joint Task Force, Monguno, during his maiden operational tour of the Sector on Saturday to ensure they are always on alert.

The COAS, who lauded the level of discipline and commitment to duty exhibited by troops of the Sector, however, admonished them to be apolitical, decisive and circumspect in all their operational engagements.

General Yahaya tasked both officers and soldiers of the Sector to sustain the aggressive tempo of the operations and keep the flag flying, in order to bring insurgency to an end in the Northeast.

The COAS was accompanied during the tour by the Chief of Operations (Army) Major General Ibrahim Yusuf, Theatre Commander Operation HADIN KAI, Major General Christopher Musa,  the Provost Marshal (Army) Major General Robert Aiyenigba, Chief of Military Intelligence (Army) Brigadier General Danladi Salihu, Maritime Component Commander OPHK Commodore Richard Shammah,  among other principal staff officers.
