The Nigerian Army has procured additional tanks and artillery armaments to further strengthen its fight against insurgency.
Lt.-Gen. Lamidi Adeosun, the Chief of Policy and Plans (CPPLANS) received the items at the Apapa Ports in Lagos.
He said that the government was doing its best to re-equip the NA to ensure that it adequately tackled insecurity and insurgency in the country.
“We are here to witness the reception of the armament that the Federal Government of Nigeria through its Ministry of Defence has procured for the Nigerian Army.
“The process of acquiring this has been on for some time, but thank God they are now coming in as at today from what you can see.
“You can see how serious the Government of Nigeria is in making sure that not only is the Army re-equipped as necessary but to ensure that the insecurity problem we are having all over the country is tackled not only with trained personnel but also with the required equipment,’’ he said.
