The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, and other Service Chiefs are currently in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, as part of strategy to intensify the fight against insurgency.

Addressing troops at the headquarters of “Operation Lafiya Dole” on Saturday, Irabor lauded them for the successes recorded.

He also commended them for their commitment and resilience, adding that the mandate of the President and Commander in Chief that Boko Haram should be crushed must be accomplished.

“What I need to let you know is that we have a mandate from him (president) and that mandate must be achieved.

“So, this is the reason why we are working assiduously. All issues of violence and insecurity, especially within the area of Operation Lafiya Dole, must come to an end,” Irabor said.

Earlier, the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen. Farouq Yahaya, lauded the CDS and service chiefs for the visit, saying it would boost the morale of the troops.

“We are encouraged by this effort of the CDS and service chiefs who have been in touch every hour,” Yahaya said.

He thanked the CDS and service chiefs for their prompt response in addressing requests from the theatre and assured them of the troops’ commitment to deliver on assigned tasks.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the CDS and service chiefs also visited the 7 Division Military Hospital, to interact with wounded soldiers receiving treatment. (NAN)
