New Army Recruits To Be Deployed To Sambisa Forest- Buratai

The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, said the new recruits into the Nigerian will be deployed to the Sambisa Forest, saying thoroughness in its recruitment processes will be upheld to ensure that only qualified persons are recruited.

Mr Buratai made the remarks during the final screening for 80 regular recruits at Falgore forest training camp on Monday in Kano State.

He said the exercise was a new approach to the screening and recruitment process of the Nigerian Army.

According to him, “You must make up your mind that you are ready to serve your country as a soldier and you should be ready, anywhere you are deployed, after your passing out.

“All of you will go to Sambisa at the end of your depot training.

“If you are not ready to move to Sambisa and other parts of the country, and of course, our border areas to defend our country from any act of aggression, then you have not started.

“It is not yet late, if you have any doubt if you are not ready for discipline and loyalty at any point, then you can stand up and go.

“There is no room for laziness and indiscipline in the army and no room for malingering,” he said.

A total of 6,000 applicants, drawn from the 36 states, have been undergoing screening at the new training ground for enlistment into the army.
