Commence Aerial Bombardment Of All Terrorists’ Hideouts, Governor El-Rufai Urge Armed Forces Of Nigeria

The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, has again called on the Armed Forces of Nigeria to facilitate aerial bombardment of terrorists’ hideouts and decimate them in order to save the country.

The Governor spoke on Tuesday as the guest of honour at the ongoing five-day Combat Arms Training (CAT) Week 2022 organised by the infantry and Armoured Corps of the Nigerian Army (NA) in Jaji, Kaduna State.

Represented by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, the Governor called for sustained joint operations against the enclaves of the terrorists.

According to the Governor: “As we are all aware, Nigeria is currently faced with numerous security challenges which have impeded the pace of our national development. It is, therefore, expedient that we collaborate to fight our real
and perceived adversaries in order to restore our national pride and dignity.”

He commended the Nigerian Army for preventing further damage during the March 28 terrorist attack on an Abuja-Kaduna train where nine passengers were killed and 62 abducted.

El-Rifai urged security agencies not to relent in their effort to find the perpetrators of the gruesome act and bring them to justice.

He said, “The current challenges crucially demand that we all rejuvenate, calibrate and strive diligently to sustain optimal levels of cooperation as anything less than a fully collaborative spirit, may turn our best efforts into liabilities instead of assets to the entire security architecture.”

At the event, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, said that the cooperation and unprecedented alliance between the Infantry and Armoured Corps would enhance the capability of the Army to degrade and decimate all adversaries.

He said the army had so far recorded numerous successes in the various theatres of operations despite some prevailing challenges.

The Army Chief assured that through effective training, proper planning and result-oriented employment of resources, the insurgents would be defeated in the shortest possible time.

The Commander, Infantry Corps, Major General Victor Ezugwu, said the theme of the CAT week underscored the increasing need to review tactical level operations.
