Buratai Calls For Intensification To Counter Violent Extremism

The Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has called for effective synergy between the military, other security agencies and the media in ensuring a peaceful environment.

The Chief of Air Staff represented by the General Officer Commanding GOC, 81 Division, Major General Olubunmi Irefin, made the call in Lagos at a media workshop tagged, InterAgency Cooperation: Roles of Public Relations Officers.

Buratai noted that the war the nation was currently prosecuting against insurgency, terrorism, militancy and kidnapping required a high degree of coordinated efforts.

He said that the workshop, which started on November 17th to end 22nd at the 81 Division Officer’s Mess, was not only apt but timely.

The army chief said that it was through such forum that respective roles of security agencies could be holistically dissected to complement the understanding of their constitutional roles in safeguarding lives and property of citizens.
