Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Taoreed Abiodun Lagbaja has informed troops of the country’s armed forces to disregard rumours being peddled around that the military has been given marching orders to invade the Niger Republic.

Lagbaja who was addressing troops of the 8 Division, Sokoto, advised that any information that does not emanate from Defence Headquarters is false and should be disregarded.

The army chief who spoke when he commissioned the newly built 8 Division assured the people of Sokoto State that the Nigerian Army will remain resolute in dealing with prevailing security threats across the country.

In his vote of thanks, the general officer, Commanding 8 Division, Godwin Mutkut, who is also the commander, of Joint Task Force, Operation Hadarin Daji, noted that moving the division to the permanent site would enhance the performance of soldiers and officers of the division.
