By Ahmad Ibrahim, Gusau
Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Yusuf Tukur Buratai has been conferred with the traditional title of Kauran Gusau, by the emir of Gusau, Dr. Ibrahim Bello.
The title according to the emir was borne out of the COAS’ efforts in stemming banditry, couple with his zeal to quell insurgency in the northern part of the country.
The emir of Gusau during the closing ceremony of activities of the Nigerian Army Day celebration 2020 which started on the 4th of July this year revealed that the Nigerian Army has made it possible for people to sleep with their two eyes closed in various communities across the northwestern sub-region who hitherto spent sleepless night because of the menace of banditry and other criminal activities associated with it.
“I’m particularly motivated, highly delighted and very impress with arrangements and what I’ve seen on ground”, he said
The emir recalled that there were instances when people neither sleep nor cultivate the farmlands but now do, because of the presence of the army and the formation of Exercise Sahel Sanity in the northwest.
“Only God will guide and protect the military to serve our people in various communities, only he can determine their successes considering the expertise they are exhibiting.”
The emir expressed optimism that the army will surely suppress banditry in the northwest with ongoing onslaught by the army.
