Buratai launches Exercise Ayem Akpatuma II in Taraba

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has launched Exercise Ayem Akpatuma II at Takum in Taraba State.



He urged troops to consolidate on the gains recorded during the first exercise.

This is contained in a statement yesterday by Maj. Ikechukwu Eze, the Acting Deputy Director Army Public Relations, in Jalingo.



Buratai said that the exercise was being conducted by Headquarters 3 Division, Headquarters Command Army Records, Headquarters Guards Brigade and 707 Special Forces Brigade.

He said it would run simultaneously from November 1 to December 23 in Taraba, Kogi, Nasarawa and Benue states.

The Army Chief, who was represented by the General Officer Commanding 3 Division, Maj.-Gen. Nuhu Angbazo, said the 2019 exercise would be conducted in collaboration with sister security and paramilitary agencies.

“The exercise is aimed at building the capacity of the Nigerian Army personnel through practical exposure to sharpen skills in combating internal security threats across the Northcentral.

“It is also expected to strengthen civil–military relations between the military and good people of Taraba through civil–military cooperation activities such as medical outreach programmes, sanitation exercises, educational support among others,” he said.

Buratai urged participating teams to take the exercise seriously, be respectful with law abiding citizens, adhere strictly to Rules of Engagement while being very firm and decisive in dealing with criminals.

Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku said the exercise provided opportunities for officers and men of the Nigerian Army to operate alongside their counterparts from other security agencies to checkmate the security challenges in the state.

He said that the strength of any nation was in the ability of its military to protect its territorial integrity and support internal security.

He said that Exercise AYEM AKPATUMA II would provide the platform for renewed and vigorous joint efforts to meet emerging threats.

Represented by his deputy, Alhaji Haruna Manu, Ishaku noted that the choice of Kofai Ahmadu in Takum as the area for the launch of the exercise was significant because it was one of the hotbeds of the crises bedevilling the state.

The event was rounded off by a medical outreach provided by the Army in collaboration with the Taraba State Ministry of Health to the public.

The medical outreach and other activities will run concurrently with the exercise as it progresses.
