Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State at the weekend hailed the Nigerian military for their many sacrifices in the fight against insurgents in the North-East region and other parts of the country.

Ortom said that the bravery, doggedness and loyalty of officers and men of the military in curbing insecurity in the country occasioned by the counter-insurgency operation in troubled areas was worthy of commendation.

He spoke during the West African Social Activity (WASA) organised by the 72 Special Forces Battalion of the Nigerian Army in Makurdi in Benue State.

The governor who was represented by his Security Adviser, Col. Paul Hemba (retd) noted that the WASA provided the entire nation another opportunity to soberly reflect on the officers and men of the military who have laid down their lives to keep the unity of the country.

He therefore enjoined everyone to continue to pray for the repose of their souls and for the well being of the families they left behind, adding, that their sacrifices shall never be in vain.
