Taoreed Lagbaja, chief of army staff, has assured Nigerians that the military would continue to confront security challenges in the country.

Lagbaja gave the assurance on Monday when he inaugurated the newly constructed headquarters of the 8 division of the Nigerian Army in Sokoto.

“I must admit that the nation has faced some security challenges along the way, but the troops have been responding to these challenges across the country,” Lagbaja said.

“We will continue to do all within our power to combat every security challenge confronting the country and meet the expectations of the country in providing a secure environment for economic activities to thrive.”


He called on Nigerians to support the troops with actionable information in their battle against criminals in the country.

Lagbaja said the construction of army formations was to bring the troops closer to the people for effective and timely response to any security threat.

He added that the new barracks would enhance regimentation and coordination of responses to security challenges.


He thanked Farouk Yahaya, his predecessor, for putting resources together for the facilities in Sokoto and Sifawa.

He also appreciated Ahmad Aliyu, the governor, and Sa’ad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto, for their support.
