The high command of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army has intensified capacity building of officers to adequately equip them to tackle the Boko Haram menace and other contemporary security challenges facing the nation.
To further ensure a successful triumph over terrorism the military is also focusing on the promotion of civil-military co-operation (CMC), which the military regards as a key weapon in its war against terrorism and other security challenges.
These were among the issues placed on the front burner at a three day training programme with the theme "National Security in the Face of Contemporary Challenges: Focus on Terrorism" held at the headquarters of the 14 Brigade, Ohafia.
The study period was organised for officers and senior non-commissioned officers, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army.
The Commander, 14 Brigade, Brigadier General Tanko Abubakar, who hosted the study period explained that it was, among other things, aimed at "broadening the knowledge of officers and SNCOs on contemporary issues and to sensitize the troops on the trend of challenges faced by security agencies in the modern era."
