The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has commended the efforts and successes of the troops in recent encounters with the terrorists and charged them to sustain and upscale the tempo of the operation.

The COAS enjoined the troops to be more vigilant and assured them of continuous support to ensure the looming defeat of the dying Boko Haram terrorists and the eventual destruction of fledgling Islamic State West Africa Province battling to establish dominant presence in Nigeria.

This commendation followed the gallantry of the Troops of the 120 Task Force Battalion location at Goniri, Yobe State, Sector 2 Operation LAFIYA DOLE, at about 1833 hours on Wednesday 26 June 2019, when the Terrorists tried to infiltrate the area.
