The Chief of Army Staff during the visit also inaugurated projects executed at the cantonment which included Theatre Command Conference Hall, one block of 36 flats for Soldiers, RSM 7 Division Garrison House and Independent Solar Power Plant.
General Yahaya commended the troops for their ingenuity in overhauling some of the battle tanks used in prosecuting the war on terror, noting that some of the tanks would be redeployed to other theatres of operation.
He described the recent upsurge in attacks by terrorists and other criminals in parts of the country as ‘panic action’, expressing determination to achieve the Presidential mandate.
The Army Chief assured that the military would not relent until all the criminals and terrorists are fished out from their hideouts.
Theatre Commander Operation Hadin Kai Major General Christopher Musa expressed commitment to delivering on his pledge to ensure troops were provided with requisite combat equipment and logistics to effectively conduct their operations.
