“I’ m appealing for the mobilization of critical stakeholders, including the traditional rulers, and the Clergy to support the military to nip the seed of insecurity in the state noting that information gathering is key to military operations”, he said.

Gen Lagbaja thanked the Governor for the infrastructural support the Army has enjoyed from the state and pledged the NA’s readiness to restore stability in Kaduna State and adjoining states.
