Buratai visits wounded soldiers, commissions projects

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, on Tuesday, visited the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Kaduna, where he checked on soldiers wounded in Operations LAFIYA DOLE and SAHEL SANITY.

He also inspected some on-going projects and commissioned completed projects at the Co barracks.

Daily Trust reports that the Senate Committee on Army on Monday visited the wounded soldiers where a member of the committee, Senator Sulieman Abdulkadir called on state governors to reintegrate the war heroes by providing them with jobs.

However, in an interview with newsmen after the visit, Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sagir Musa said the visit was primarily to see troops of Operations LAFIYA DOLE and SAHEL SANITY wounded in action who are currently receiving treatment at the hospital.

“It is also a working visit to see comprehensive upgrade of facilities at 44 Reference Hospital Kaduna.

“The COAS specifically came to see patients of Operation Lafiya Dole and Operation Sahel Sanity recuperating at the hospital,” he added.

Daily Trust reports that about 416 wounded soldiers injured in the on-going fight against insurgency in Borno State are currently being treated at the 44 Nigerian Army Referral Hospital, Kaduna.
