Chief of Army Staff renames military operation against Boko Haram from “Operation Zaman Lafiya” to ”Lafiya Dole”.


    Nigeria’s new Chief of Army Staff, Major General T.Y. Buratai

    was in Borno State on Sunday where he said that the army must awake

    and be alive to its traditional responsibility of defending the integrity

    of the nation in the face of the ongoing insurgency.
    Buratai who was in Konduga local government area of Borno state

    addressed a military formation there and renamed the ongoing

    operation against the terrorists from “Operation Zaman Lafiya” to ”Lafiya Dole”.

    He said the renaming was informed by the refusal of the militants to

    take the opportunity for peace, hence “enough is enough.”
    Buratai said that he will give them the needed support while they

    also have to ensure that peace returns to the North East no matter

    the plan of Boko Haram.
