He urged the troop to be more vigilant and alert to their responsibilities, adding that with discipline and commitment, the war in the northeast will come to an end.

Mr. Yahaya assured the troops that the desired attention was being paid to the administrative and operational challenges facing their units.

In the palace of the Emir of Biu, Mustapha Umar, the COAS requested the support of the traditional leader and his subjects in the ongoing counter-insurgency operations.

He said that the cooperation and goodwill of the traditional institution and the citizenry were invaluable to significant and sustainable operational success.

In response, the royal father assured COAS of the unwavering support and cooperation of his traditional council and the good people of the Emirate of Biu to the Nigerian military.

The Emir conveyed the Emirate’s gratitude to the COAS for the sacrifices and commitment shown by the troops in the fight against the insurgency in his domain.

He urged the army chief and indeed the Nigerian military to remain resolute in fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

The COAS has embarked on an operational tour of the Northeast Theater of Operations on Wednesday, to assess the progress made in the counterinsurgency operation and interact with commanders and troops.
