Chief of Defence Staff, Lucky Irabor has expressed that the military will remain steadfast in the fight against insecurity.
He stated this on Monday at a three-day prayer held in honour of Ibrahim Attahiru, chief of army staff, who died alongside 10 other officers in an air crash on Friday.
Addressing soldiers at the event, Irabor stated that the armed forces of Nigeria remains strong in spite of the loss, and urged all to remain steadfast in the discharge of their constitutional mandate.
He also stated that the spirits of the troops were not dampened in any way.
“Our spirits remain unshakable, immovable,” he said.
“I’ll like every officer of the armed forces to remain steadfast because that which we desire to achieve, by way of protecting lives and properties of Nigerians in line with our constitutional mandate, would be achieved.”
