The Nigerian Army in Enugu State has pledged to complement efforts of other collaborating security outfits to beef up security during the forthcoming general elections in the State.
The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division, Major- Gen. Abubakar Maikobi made the pledge in Enugu on Sunday at the 8th Walimatul Qur’an and graduation ceremony held at the Division Barracks.
Represented by the Director of Education, 82 Division, Brig.-General Aminu Goni, the GOC said Nigerian Army was set to ensure the safety of lives and property in the state and to make the election hitch-free.
“Provision of security during this election is a collaborative effort among security agencies to ensure a hitch free election. The Nigerian Army is part of the collaborative effort and we will ensure the election is violent free.
“The exact number of armies to be deployed will be dependent on the figure given to us through this collaboration,” he said.
