Troops of 192 Battalion of the Nigerian Army have been relieved from the battlefield fighting Boko Haram insurgency after serving several years in Operation Lafiya Dole in Northeast.
The re-deployed soldiers also “heaved sighs of relief” Monday from the ongoing five-year counter-insurgency operations in Sambisa Forest and Lake Chad region.
While conducting a induction ceremony at Headquarters of 7 Division of the Nigerian Army Maimalari Cantonment Maiduguri the Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 7 Division, Brig-Gen. Abdul-Khalifa Ibrahim commended the re-deployed soldiers for their outstanding performances in theatre of war.
He urged them to remain disciplined as they leave the war zone to reunite with their respective families and other members of public.
According to him the Battalion will be de-inducted further at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry Jaji, Kaduna State.
He therefore, urged them to go on various courses to improve their professionalism for promotion in the Armed Forces.
When you go back, the way you will interact with the civil populace is different from what you have been doing fighting Boko Haram.
