The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has said the Nigerian Army will sustain the tempo of the ongoing fight against insurgency in the North-East.
Buratai gave the assurance on Wednesday when he visited the Emir of Biu, Alhaji Mustapha Umar Mustapha, in his palace.
He said the visit was part of his operational visits to the theatre of Operation Lafiya Dole to encourage the troops.
According to him, the Nigerian Army is very much alive to its responsibilities and will continue to do its best to end terrorism and other security challenges facing the country.
While commiserating with the people of the emirate council over the recent attacks by insurgents on some communities, Buratai said that the military had taken appropriate steps to address the menace.
He commended the emirate for its support to the troops and urged the people to sustain it.
While responding, the Emir praised the Chief of Army Staff and the Nigerian Army for the numerous developmental projects being executed in the emirate.
