Nigerian Army says Pipeline vandals have been decimated
« on: July 01, 2016, 01:48:46 AM »

The Nigerian Army (NA) Thursday said activities of pipeline vandals around Lagos have been drastically reduced and the hoodlums decimated.

Outgone Commander, 9 Brigade, Gen. Bulama Biu stated this while handing over to his successor, Gen. Sani Mohammed at the command’s headquarters.

He noted that despite the myriad challenges the command had to grapple when he took over, the loyalty and commitment of the officers and soldiers led to their overcoming them.

Biu who was posted to Calabar to head the 13 Brigade expressed confidence that his successor was a worthy officer who will drive the command to greater heights.

“We had issues of pipeline vandals, miscreants and other vices in Lagos but we have been combating them.

“Through Operation AWATSE, we have been able to tame activities of vandals considerable. Although, it’s not an issue to be completely eradicated within a short time. But I can say we have done very well in fighting them.

“I advise my successor to be commited and ensure troops remain professional. He should ensure they operate within rules of engagement and uphold human rights,” said Biu.

In his remark, Mohammed who described the security challenges bedevilling the nation as unpalatable stated that he would continue from where his predecessor stopped for the greater good of the nation.
