Commander tasks troops to end insurgency in North East

The newly posted Commander, Sector 2 Joint Task Force North East, Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) Maj.-Gen. Koko Isoni, has charged troops to redouble efforts to eliminate remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in the region.

This is contained in a statement by Lt. Kennedy Anyanwu, Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, Sector 2 OPHK, on Saturday in Damaturu.

Isoni reiterated commitment to build on the successes recorded by his predecessor in the ongoing operation against insurgency to restore lasting peace in the region.

He also expressed willingness to partner with critical stakeholders to end insurgency in line with the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya’s vision.

“A professional Nigerian Army is ready to accomplish assigned mission within a joint environment in defence of Nigeria,” he said.

Isoni took over from Brig.-Gen. Adamu Nura, who was recently redeployed.
