Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff, has charged troops of Operation Lafiya Dole deployed at Madagali in Adamawa State not to give terrorists any breathing space.
Buratai gave the charge on Sunday while visiting the troops in Adamawa State.
The Chief of Army Staff urged them to maintain the current tempo of the onslaught against the insurgents.
He assured the troops that the government would provide the needed supports to enable them to prosecute the war against insurgency and other criminal activities in the country.
Buratai commended the troops for their gallantry in dealing with the Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province terrorists in the region.
“I am glad to be here with you because this is one of the areas that have been quite strategic in the operation of Operation Lafiya Dole.
“You have done great and I want to commend you for standing firm against all the criminals whatever name they called themselves whether Boko Haram, ISWAP or bandits.
“Do not give them any breathing space. That means you must go out at all times, day and night, whether rain or sunshine and make sure you deal with them.
Buratai said that the welfare package of the troops would also be improved on from 2020 in line with the promise of President Muhammadu Buhari.
