Nigerian army vows to protect territorial integrity

LAGOS – The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said it would continue to protect the territorial integrity of the country against any threat.

Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) Gabriel Olonisakin, who said this in Abuja, added that the security of the nation could not be compromised for whatever reasons.

He told his audience that the military was ever ready to deal with any threat from any quarters.

Olonisakin also promised that the military would try its best to re-introduce forest guards in order to get rid of miscreants and other criminal elements.

He commended the military for their efforts so far in tackling insurgency in the North-East and militancy springing up in the Niger Delta Region and other parts of the country.
