Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai has disclosed that the Nigeria Army would recruit 12,000 men in 2017 to help fight campainers and other uprisings across the country. Buratai was speaking during a budget defence session with the House of Representatives Committee on Army.

According to him, the recruitment exercise would take place after the Army’s 2017 budget proposal of N152.8 billion is approved. He further revealed that the exercise would be in two batches with 6,000 men first and another 6,000 later.

The army chief further explained that the Army was currently engaged in different operations in almost all the states of the federation, combating criminalities such as abducting, terrorism, pipeline vandalism, cattle rustling, among others.

He complained that delay in release of funds was frustrating military operations nationwide, adding that the morale of troops must be boosted regularly.
