While assuring the troops of the determination of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya to ensure all requisite logistics and support for the successful conduct of the ongoing counter-insurgency war are provided, Gen Musa noted that as border towns between Nigeria and Niger Republics, the locations are strategic and must therefore be dominated by the troops.
