Ahmed Audi said collaboration was needed to tackle Nigeria’s security challenges, since “no service can do it alone”.
The army chief said that the Nigerian army was committed to ensuring the return of peace to every part of the country in no distant time.
The one-star and two-star generals were presented with their records of service certificates by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya.
Army spokesman said the security operatives took out Boko Haram and Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists in a fierce battle.
Among the things I want to achieve is to return the Nigerian Army soldiers to the professional place where they can do their jobs without hindrance,” said Mr Yahaya.
The Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 10, Ali Janga, says the police, military and other security agencies alone cannot fight bandits terrorising Nigerians.
The Nigerian Army says it foiled Boko Haram terrorists’ attempted attack on Babangida on Wednesday.
Buhari’s regime cannot win the war against bandits, unknown gunmen, and terrorists without providing “adequate logistics” to the armed forces.
The Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya has approved the overhauling of obsolete ‘logistics’ in North-East theatre operations.
Nigeria’s chief of staff said the veterans have the potential to support the army in combating all forms of insecurity.
