The Nigerian army said it has dislodged insurgents’ from their various strongholds in North East, North West and a few areas in Niger state.
Maj.-Gen. Kevin Aligbe, Commander, Training and Doctrine Command Nigerian Army (TRADOC) in Niger, disclosed this during the 2023 West African Social Activities (WASA) in Minna.
Aligbe said few insurgents raising their ugly heads in Niger state had been dislodged, adding that the war against insurgency had progressed steadily and effectively in the country.
“These achievements and successes have been widely recognised by the Federal Government and well-meaning Nigerians and even the international community,” he said.
He said TRADOC and 31 Brigade had continued to contribute troops to the ongoing operation HADIN KAI in the North East and HADARIN DAJI in the North West.
He said despite these achievements, there was still a security threat in the country, particularly in Niger, as terrorists had spread to some parts of the state carrying out dastardly acts.
He said troops of TRADOC, 31 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Airforce, Defence Headquarters Special Operations Force and 18 Brigade had been carrying out operations on ISIS within the state, with tremendous results.
Aligbe called on the military personnel and members of the public to be more security vigilant to nip in the bud any nefarious plan of the miscreants in the society.
He appreciated the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. -Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, for unrelenting material and financial support to the cantonment that enabled it to accomplish its achievements.
Maj.-Gen. Jamiu Jimoh, Chief of Doctrine and Combat Development, TRADOC, lauded the troops for performing excellently and pledged the troops’ continuous effort in the fight against insurgency.
Brig.-Gen. Hamidu Bobbo, Commander, 31 Artillery Brigade, attributed the successes recorded to consistent training of personnel and appreciated COAS for his continuous support.
