In a bid to boost the morale of troops in counterinsurgency operations in Nigeria’s North East, Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya and the Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Isiaka Amao arrived Maiduguri Monday, to honour members of the Joint Task Force (JTF), and Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK).
Impressed with the performance of the troops, the Service Chiefs were reaffirmed their commitment to their welfare during a Sallah luncheon organised in honour of the troops by the Headquarters Theatre Command.
Earlier, the COAS paid a compassionate visit to troops wounded in action at the 7 Division Military Hospital Maiduguri, reassuring that he is ever determined to ensure the medical treatment of personnel and their families.
He added that those who need special vocational training to help them cope with their new health status and overcome psychological trauma will get it.
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao felicitated with the troops and called on all security agencies to sustain the existing synergy with the military in defence of Nigeria’s national security.
Amao hinted on the acquisition of more combat platforms for the Nigerian Airforce to support troops’ air combat efficiency.
The representative of the Governor of Borno State, Deputy Governor Umar Usman Kadafur earlier in a goodwill message from the Borno state government, expressed appreciation to the military for the restoration of the relative peace in Borno state.
