The chief of army staff, Gen Tukur Buratai, has assured the troops of Operation Harbin Kunama IV of the provision of additional military hardwares and platforms to enhance the speedy completion of the ongoing war against insurgency in the north east.

Mr. Buratai said this on Thursday at the Army Special Forces Super Camp Ngamdu, in Kaga Local Government Area of Borno state, in continuation of his tour of troops’ locations in the north east theatre of operation.

The army chief further directed the troops who have been on training, to take their training seriously in preparation for the final onslaught on Boko Haram insurgents.

He said that the Nigerian Army had taken delivery of more equipment and platforms that would be deployed to various theaters of operations across the country.

The COAS directed the troops to take advantage of their new additional equipment and platforms to hasten the final defeat of insurgency in Nigeria.

He further enjoined the officers and men to ensure that the recent setbacks experienced by the military does not deter them from defeating the terrorists and assured them that with more commitment, courage and resilience, the insurgency will soon be history in our country.

“As you all know, we have been on this ground for long and I expect us to remain resolute, selflessly committed and push for the total defeat of the Insurgents in the coming days.

“I assure you that what is remaining is very small but it will require us to put more efforts, more determination and more courage to complete the remaining part of the battle soon.

“Recall that of recent, we had setbacks which must not be allowed to happen again.

“We will not allow any further casualties, both in men and equipment,” Buratai said.
