His charge came as Boko Haram launched a fresh offensive on an Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs Camp in Dalori that threw residents of Maiduguri, Borno State into panic, prompting the Nigerian Air Force, NAF to scramble fighter jets to patrol the city.

Buratai was speaking at a maiden workshop organised by Army Headquarters Department of Training and Operations, DATOPS held for commanders, commanding officers and staff officers of Operation Lafiya Dole on the concept of “super camp” held at the 25 Task Force Brigade “Super Camp-2”, Damboa, Borno State.

The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Benson Akinroluyo said the new super camp concept would serve as launching pad for mobile offensive operations in containing and denying the Boko Haram terrorists/criminals freedom of action in identified areas across the theatre.
