Exercise Crocodile Smile 11: The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai has warned troops of the Nigerian Army participating in various internal security operations around the country to conduct themselves within the ambit of the law.
He warned his men against contravening the code of conduct guiding soldiers in internal security operations.
The army chief handed the warning at the commissioning of the remodelled Nigerian Army Finance Headquarters building, as well as the launching of its data recovery centre and the Nigerian Army Command Mess 2 in Lagos.
He said: “The Nigerian Army has been faced with several challenges ranging from proliferation of militancy, insurgency, kidnapping and other forms of crimes across the country.
“All these menaces have stretched our human and material resources, but the Nigerian Army Finance Corps has been able to manage our scarce resources well and our troops in various theatres of operations have been getting their allowances promptly.”
He called on the officers and men of the Nigerian Army Finance Corps to ensure that they constantly embarked on capacity building to ensure they do not go out of tune with current technological development and changes in the information technology environment.
