The Armed Forces Command and Staff College in Jaji, Kaduna State, has conducted a special training course for junior military officers on counter-terrorism and peace support operations.
Speaking at their graduation ceremony, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, said the training had become necessary due to the emerging security challenges.
He urged the junior officers to apply the skills they had learnt from the college in the ongoing war against terrorists in the northeast and other related crimes across Nigeria.
“Always conduct yourselves in a manner that is befitting of an officer when discharging your duties,” Buratai advised the junior officers.
The junior military officers were drawn from the Nigerian Navy, Army, Air Force and allied officers from neighbouring African countries.
For 21 weeks, they were subjected to intense training and academic activities.
