Military Steps Up Efforts to Strengthen Partnership with Zamfara State Community Protection Guard

The Nigerian military has said that efforts are ongoing to better the cooperation with the Zamfara State Community Protection Guard. 

Director Defence Media Operations, Major General Edward Buba disclosed this while reacting to the news of adoption of over 500 people which according to him is fictitious and over exaggerated to state that over 500 people were abducted by terrorist,while in reality troops can confirm that 4 persons were abducted.

General Buba said though the military admits that there is still a lot of work ahead to better secure citizens and protect them from acts of terror but efforts are ongoing to better secure the citizens in their farmlands with the set in of the rainy season. There is also a lot more ongoing, which is better left unsaid due to ongoing operations in the area. 

On the issue of rotation or overstayed troops in operational area. It is no news that, the current military leadership upon assumption of office addressed several of these issues. In fact, both issues were prioritised in line with enhancing troops welfare and administration. 

Accordingly, on the ground,troops continue to demonstrate stamina, resolve and strong desire to remain focused and stay the course until the enduring defeat of the terrorist and their cohorts. 

He added that Troop of Op HADARIN DAJI which covers the North Western part of the country are actively fighting and conducting ongoing operations in 1 and around Zurmi LGA of Zamfara State.  

"It must be noted that troops are fighting a vicious enemy in a complex combat environment in which several factors are at interplay both on and off the battlefield. 

"Troops are compelled to deal with two realities. The virtual reality as well as the reality on the ground. The virtual reality which is mostly on social media is more of fictitious figures and extreme exaggeration of the situation on the grogrou"he stressed 

He therefore reaffirm the military is in a good and strong position in this war against the terrorist with many terrorist leaders killed. In his word, "We are making them pay a much heavier price than we have been forced to pay."
