Operation Desert Sanity: Our troops did a wonderful job – COAS

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, has described the performance of troops in the recent operations to clear the remnants of terrorists in the North-East as outstanding.

Lagbaja made this known in an interview with newsmen in Maiduguri, where he celebrated Eid-el Kabir with the troops of the North East Joint Task Force Operation Hadin Kai.

Lagbaja assured the troops of sustained support to continue delivering on their assigned tasks of restoring peace and security in the region and Nigeria in general.

“My visit to the Theatre Command this afternoon is to come and say thank you to the troops for their wonderful performances during the just-concluded phases of ‘Operation Desert Sanity 3,’ ‘Lake Sanity 2,’ and ‘Mountain Sanity 2,’” Lagbaja said.

“My assessment of how the troops have performed is drawn from the report I have there from Army headquarters indicating the number of terrorists neutralised, victims rescued, and weapons and other physical equipment recovered.

“You can see the display of these materials, including weapons that were recovered by the troops at the parade ground, which drive home the performance of the troops,” he added.

The COAS lauded the ingenuity of the theatre command through its mechanical and electrical engineering unit for repairing most of the damaged equipment recovered from the terrorists.

This, he noted, were particularly vehicles that could be used to further enhance operations of units and formations in the zone.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while in Maiduguri, the COAS, who had lunch with the troops, inaugurated office complexes and road projects at the Maimalari Cantonment.

He was also taken on a guided tour of items recovered from terrorists in recent operations.
