Twenty-nine generals of the infantry corps of the Nigerian army have retired from service.

The generals retired from the army during an event at the Jaji military cantonment in Kaduna, on Friday.

Ten of them were brigadier generals, while 19 of them were major generals.

Speaking on behalf of the retirees, Victor Ezugwu, a major general, said the war against terrorism would end if the proposed establishment of army aviation succeeds.


Ezugwu said the night fighting capabilities of the army infantry corps also needs improvement.

The general said the infantry corps must not relent, while he urged serving officers and soldiers to be proactive and be ahead of the enemy.

“The frontline is expanding and the Nigerian army is becoming increasingly committed with the eyes of the nation and the world on it,” Ezugwu said.


“Our infantry corps must therefore not relent or rest on her oars as the entire Nigerian army depends largely on the infantry corps to achieve its core mandate and mission.

“I admonish the infantry that as the threats to Nigeria’s sovereignty are becoming asymmetric in time and space, you must be proactively way ahead of our adversaries in all aspects of the unfolding combat scenarios.”

He asked their successors to surpass their achievements in tactics and operations.
