Military is re-strategising to meet Dec. deadline — CDS

The military is re-
strategising to meet the December deadline set by
President Muhammadu Buhari to end insurgency in the
North-East, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen. Gabriel
Olonisakin, has said.
Olonisakin made the statement on Wednesday in Port
Harcourt while on tour of military formations and units
in Rivers.
“We are currently working on the December deadline
by re-addressing our strategies to ensure that we meet
the target,” he said.
Olonisakin said that his visit to Port Harcourt was to
ascertain the readiness and preparedness of troops to
combat terrorism and insecurity in the nation.
He said that efforts were currently ongoing to enhance
efficiency and tactics of the military to enable troops
perform better during operations.
The CDS sympathised with the families of seven
soldiers who on Tuesday lost their lives during an
exchange of gunfire with members of Boko Haram
insurgents in Damaturu.
“I must say that we commiserate with the families of
those who lost their dear ones in that incident.
“The military is on top of the situation to ensure that
we checkmate such re-occurrence,” he said. (NAN)
