Army chief to troops: Prepare for possible increase in security threats in 2022

The chief of army staff (COAS), Faruk Yahaya has ordered commanders to prepare for a possible increase in the activities of violent state actors in 2022.

This was stated on Friday by Yahaya at the closing ceremony of the COAS annual conference in Abuja.

Yahaya said the activities of the army have been appraised and efforts are being put in place towards better positioning to face the tasks ahead in 2022 and beyond.

He also directed commanders to train troops on night operations and anti-ambush drill.

Troops who have been fighting insurgency in the north-east have suffered night attacks and ambush.

A brigadier-general in November was killed alongside three soldiers in Borno following an ambush by suspected insurgents.

Speaking at the conference, Yahaya said the event provided the needed direction towards building the capacity of the army to accomplish assigned missions in defence of the country.

“In the course of the conference, we discussed vigorously salient issues affecting the performance of our constitutional roles and the sustenance of professionalism,” he said.

We have equally considered the various security issues plaguing our nation. Consequently, our focus for the coming year would be on developing capacities for improved performances across board.

“Emphasis will be placed on both individual and unit training that will enhance teamwork and professionalism.

“Furthermore, commanders must ensure that their troops master the art of night operations and anti-ambush drills by engaging in effective night operations and anti-ambush drill training.

“We must take the fight to the adversary in order to neutralise and defeat them.

“Commanders are also urged to develop contingency plans to ensure our forces always retain the initiative in all our theatres of operation.

“In that vein, commanders must plan for the possible increase in scope and dimension of the activities of violent state actors in the coming year.”

According to NAN, the army chief also said he expects that with the improved support troops have in terms of logistics and other key combat enablers, the army should strive to decisively defeat the adversaries in all theatres of operations.

He added that commanders must also look at the possibilities of conducting a wide range of operations against bandits and insurgents.
