The Nigerian Army has announced the acquisition of four Mine Resistant Anti Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAPs) as part of its strategies to intensify effort in the fight against Boko Haram.
A statement by the force on its official Twitter handle also announced that the vehicles were acquired following partnership with an indigenous armour vehicle manufacturing company based in Ode-Remo in Ogun state.
It added that Proforce Nigeria Limited, which made the vehicles, did a commendable job in delivering first ever Nigerian Army proforce locally manufactured MRAP, four of which were inaugurated on August 1, 2019 by the chief of defence staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that following the killing of three police officers by soldiers of the 93 Battalion of the Nigerian Army in Taraba state, the Nigerian Army had issued an advisory for all troops.
Tukur Buratai directed soldiers to tread carefully in their dealings with police officers in the coming weeks.
Buratai, in a letter dated August 9 and copied to Army formations nationwide, also admonished travelling military personnel to do so in mufti if necessary in order to avoid confrontations with policemen.
