Buratai, gives automatic promotion to soldiers for gallantry

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

Chief of the Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, has visited troops of 21 Brigade at Bama, Borno State where he not only hailed their performance against Boko Haram but  also gave automatic promotion to two soldiers for gallantry.

The troops from the brigade had liberated Bama from Haram terrorists  after a fierce battle leading to the  killing of scores of  the terrorists while a cache of arms and  Improvised Explosive Device, IED, making materials were recovered.

According to a statement  by Lt. Colonel Aminu Illyasu, the COAS, while addressing troops, reminded them of their mandate and deadline to clear the pockets of Boko Haram terrorists within their area of operative before the end of December which he strongly believes is possible looking at their high spirit.

He also urged them to always be alert, noting, ‘Nigerians are proud of you, Mr President is proud of you, we must continue to make them proud as you are better trained and better equipped than the terrorists’.

“Highlight of the visit was the promotion and decoration of  two soldiers of the brigade for their gallantry, dedication and loyalty from the rank of Lance Corporal to Corporal, an event that further lifted the morale of not only the beneficiaries but the whole Brigade.

“The elevated soldiers  are Corporal Thomas Orim of 202 Battalion and Corporal Abubakar Usman Usman of 150 Task Force Battalion.”
