Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has charged troops to up the ante in tackling kidnapping and cattle rustling in Nigeria.
The army chief gave the charge in a statement while felicitating with soldiers on the occasion of 2018 Eid-el-Fitr.
He said the army was re-strategising to deal decisively with some of the situations in North Central and North Western parts of the country.
“These feats no doubt are calls for officers and soldiers to redouble our efforts in the collective discharge of our constitutional roles,” the statement read.
“In the pursuit of this, I charge you all to maintain discipline, be committed, dedicated, resilient and courageous in the discharge of your duties.”
