Military high command has confirmed the relocation of its command centre to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, to facilitate the crushing of Boko Haram terrorists who have tormented North-East zone in the last six years.
The action is in compliance with President Muhammadu Buhari’s matching order that the military should relocate to where the insurgents are having a field day from Abuja.
Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, confirmed military compliance in a terse statement issued yesterday, which reads: “In compliance with the presidential pronouncement and the Chief of Army Staff’s directive, a reconnaissance and advance team for the establishment of Military Command and Control Centre, MCCC for Operation Zaman Lafiya for the fight against terrorism and insurgency has moved to Maiduguri, Borno State.
“The team, which is led by a two-Star General, has already commenced work in earnest and it is comprised of elements of the Office of the Chief of Army Staff, all the relevant Army Headquarters Departments and other combat support components. The centre will serve as a forward command base for the Chief of Army Staff and other Service Chiefs,” he said.
Col. Usman added the centre is essentially an elaboration of an already existing Army Headquarters Command and Control arrangement. “From now on, the fight against terrorism and insurgency would be monitored, coordinated and controlled from this centre.
“I wish to inform you also that its establishment would not create another layer of command structure but would add impetus and renewed vigour to Operation Zaman Lafiya, all aimed at bringing terrorism and insurgency to an end. An alternate command centre is also being established in Yola,” he said.Military high command has confirmed the relocation of its command centre to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, to facilitate the crushing of Boko Haram terrorists who have tormented North-East zone in the last six years.
