Buratai gave the charge while congratulating the Theatre Commander, Sector Commanders, Super Camps Commanders, Commanding Officers, as well as the gallant officers and soldiers serving in OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE, for their gallantry that manifested in the unprecedented successes recorded in the Theatre recently. 

Buratai, in a congratulatory letter to the Theatre Commander, OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE, Major General Olusegun Adeniyi, showered encomiums on the troops and their commanders for the rare display of courage, gallantry and patriotism that led to the decimation of the leadership and ranks of the criminal Boko Haram terrorists and their affiliate ISWAP in various parts of the Theatre.

In a statement by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa quoted the Chief of Army Staff as having said that “he has never been so happy and proud of the gallant troops in their concerted efforts of ending the menace of the criminal Boko Haram terrorists’ group and ISWAP.” Buratai urged them to continue to dominate the Theatre and maintain high standard of professionalism.

The COAS further thanked them for the renewed efforts that brought more confidence and hope in the troops by Nigerians, adding that he has foreseen that with the renewed zeal, it is just a matter of days to end the menace of Boko Haram terrorists and contain their criminality.

Buratai said that his confidence in total victory has further been rekindled by the dogged determination of the troops on the ground.

He further said; “I am more confident now than ever before with your current robust posture that you will end the BHT/ISWAP menace in no distance time.” The Army boss reminded the troops that they have done it before, and they will do it again without any foreign troops around and therefore assured the troops of his continued support and stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is proud of their accomplishments and would continue to provide the needed support for the troops to enable them to do more.
