Against the backdrop of the rise in criminality and insecurity in Nigeria, the Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya has vowed that the military will do everything possible to eliminate all criminal groups in Nigeria.


He made this vow when he spoke on Monday at the Maimalari Military Cantonment in Maiduguri when he hosted troops of North East Operation HADIN KAI to a luncheon to mark Easter.


Represented by Theatre Commander Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Ali, Yahaya asserted that the event was in line with the tradition of celebrating with personnel in the frontline during festivities.


The COAS said Easter is of great spiritual importance to Christian faithful worldwide because it’s a season of love, hope and prayers to Almighty God.
