General Azubuike Ihejirika, at the weekend, summoned all the General Officers Commanding the Divisions of the Nigerian Army and Corps Commanders to an emergency meeting described by sources as no holds barred.

Confirming the development, Director of Army Public Relations,

Brigadier General Ibrahim Attahiru, said, “As part of routine review of the counter terrorism and counter insurgency operations with a view to ensuring a more agile and robust posture to meet the full spectrum of asymmetric warfare challenges, the Chief of the Army Staff has just concluded a meeting with top military commanders from all major formations of the Nigerian Army”.

“The purpose of the meeting was to reappraise the counter terrorism and counter insurgency efforts in the north east with a view to making future plans. “It is worthy of note that our operations in the North-east have continued to disrupt terrorists activities thereby denying them freedom of action”.
