Agim made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Monday.
He said the participants comprised 12 Air Force officers, 12 drawn from the Navy and 66 from the Army.
“Training the military in specialised courses makes them useful to the civil community and also empowers them with skills to assist after their service years”, he said.
The commandant said the training would the soldiers to integrate with the civil community and resettlement after their service.
Agim said the training would also make the officers more useful, urging them to work hard to make good grades.
