Chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai has informed recruits of the Nigerian army to prepare for a move to Sambisa, a stronghold of the Boko Haram sect in Borno state.
He made this known while speaking during the final screening for 80 regular recruits at Falgore forest in Kano.
He called on the recruits to make up their minds to defend the country against external aggression.
He expressed that those who are not disciplined and loyal to the cause are free to leave.
“As such, you must make up your mind that you are ready to serve your country as a soldier and you should be ready, anywhere you are deployed, after your passing out,” he said.
“All of you will go to Sambisa at the end of your depot training. If you are not ready to move to Sambisa and other parts of the country, and of course, our border areas to defend our country from any act of aggression, then you have not started.
“It is not yet late, if you have any doubt if you are not ready for discipline and loyalty at any point, then you can stand up and go. There is no room for laziness and indiscipline in the army and no room for malingering.”
