Military lauded by reps on anti-insurgency fight successes

The House of Representatives has commended the Nigerian Armed Forces for their continuous efforts in combating insurgency and terrorism in various troubled regions.

Babajimi Benson, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Defence, disclosed this in Abuja on Wednesday.

He noted the significant achievements of the troops in recent times.

“The successes recorded in various operations across the country underscore the bravery, professionalism, and unwavering commitment of our military personnel to safeguarding the nation,” he said in a statement issued in Abuja.

He stated that these achievements are a testament to the resilience and sacrifice of the men and women in uniform, who tirelessly work to ensure the safety and security of all Nigerians.

“The recent successes of our armed forces in various operations across the country are highly commendable. These victories not only reflect the strategic prowess of our military leadership but also the dedication and bravery of our soldiers, airmen, and ratings. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their relentless efforts to protect our nation,” he added.

The lawmaker, who represents Ikorodu Federal Constituency in Lagos State, noted that the troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force have continually dealt fatal blows to terrorist groups in the Lake Chad region through a series of daring operations.

“In one such operation conducted on June 15, 2024, several terrorists were neutralized and 34 women and children were rescued from insurgents,” he said.

He assured the nation’s armed forces of the readiness of the parliament to provide the necessary support to enable them to succeed in their mission of safeguarding the lives and property of Nigerians.
