The Nigerian army says it is ready to reduce rising cases of kidnapping and other criminal tendencies across the country.
Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Tukur Buratai, made the promise at the flag-off of Operation Egwu Eke 111, otherwise known as Python Dance, of the 32 Artillery Brigade in Owo, Ondo state.
With particular reference to Ondo State, the Army Chief, represented by the
General Officer Commanding, 2 Division of Nigerian Army, Major-General
Okwudili Azinta, said the military would do everything possible to
flush-out kidnappers in the State.
The Army Chief also frowned at the influx of arms and training of political
thugs by some politicians, ahead of the general election.
