The Theatre Commander (TC) Joint Task Force North-East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), Major-General Ibrahim Ali, has extolled the operational posture, proficiency and proactiveness of Seven Division of the Nigerian Army (NA).
These virtues, according to Ali, have seen the formation sustaining the operational tempo and momentum in the ongoing onslaught against Boko Haram (BH) terrorists and their Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) counterparts in the North-East Theatre of operations.
The Theatre Commander gave the commendation during his familiarisation visit to the Division’s Headquarters in Maimalari Cantonment, Borno State, North-East Nigeria, on Saturday.
On arrival, the TC was received by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division and Commander, Sector 1 OPHK, Major-General Waidi Shaibu, who introduced him to the various Component Commanders and other Principal Staff Officers of Headquarters 7 Division, before ushering him into the Operations Room where he received a detailed brief on the general security situation within the Division’s Area of Responsibility (AOR).
The TC was also briefed on deployments of formations and units under the command, as well as the successes, challenges and future projections of the Division, amongst others.
Ali, thereafter, inspected series of ongoing projects within the Maimalari Cantonment before proceeding to Forward Operating Base (FOB), Molai, to assess the operational readiness of deployed troops.
In his remarks, the TC lauded the Division for its concerted efforts in fostering peace in the Theatre.
He urged officers and men to remain diligent and focused in ensuring that the remnants of the BH and ISWAP terrorists are decisively dealt with.
He equally urged them to shun all forms of misconduct while working towards the actualisation of the Theatre’s mandate in eradicating terrorism in the North-East.
The TC commended the GOC for his efforts at developing the infrastructure in the Cantonment, imploring him to maintain set standards in order to assuage the acute shortage of accommodation in the Cantonment.
Climax of the visit was a simulation of various combat drills by troops of 7 Division Garrison, which held at FOB Molai, signing of the visitor’s register and group photograph. Present during the visit were Formations and Unit Commanders, Principal Staff Officers from Headquarters Theatre Command and 7 Division.
