There May Be Increase In Insecurity In 2022 – Yahaya

Following cases of insecurity across the country, especially in the North East, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Farouk Yahaya, has reportedly asked commanders to plan for a possible increase in the scope and dimension of the activities of violent state actors in 2022.

The Army Chief reportedly stated this at the closing ceremony of the COAS Annual Conference in Abuja on Friday.

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

He added that, “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.’

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

He noted that, “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.”

He urged that, “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.”

He made it known that, “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.”
