The Nigeria Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has Saturday showed leadership by example when he supervised the arrest of four Boko Haram terrorists planning to ambush his convoy as he visits troops at the battle ground in northeast border areas of Borno state.
This was shortly after the Boko Haram terrorists had ambushed an advance team of soldiers moving ahead of the COAS’ convoy.
The top soldiers arrived Maiduguri on Friday alongside other top officers of the Nigeria Army as well as the Chief of Defence Staff. He set out for what could be described as the most petrifying trip towards Nigeria’s major international border in the northeast, where soldiers are busy making gains in defeating the terrorists and reclaiming captured territories.
The COAS whose presence apparently encouraged the soldiers to move on, had immediately urged officers to rush the injured soldiers to the hospital for treatment, had also ensured that those arrested alongside the Boko Haram suspects were taken to the barracks for proper investigation.
