Burutai Says Sambisa Will Serve As Training Ground For Army

Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, on Monday said Sambisa forest would serve as training ground for personnel of the Nigerian Army.



Buratai said this in Damasak, a town in Borno, while celebrating Christmas with troops of 145 Battalion.

He said troops were already conducting a mop up operation in the forest.

“We are also opening up roads to Sambisa and Alagarno forest. Sambisa forest is going to be one of our training grounds,” he said.

“I have already directed that we should conduct Nigerian Army small arms championship in that forest next year.

“And we are going to use it also to test fire our fighting vehicles, other key equipment and weapons that require testing whenever we want to induct new weapon and equipment into the Nigerian army inventory.

“It will afford us very good ground for basic tactics and indeed advance tactics, including but not limited to tactics at the Platoon, company, battalion, Brigade and even division levels.

“We are going to make it more robust to make sure that these criminals do not come back to that forest again.”

Must they announce everything? Why should people know your every move. Isn't that a bad thing.

Yes & no to your question & I'll explain. First off, propaganda is a HUGE tool in fighting terrorism & insurgency, so both parties need tons of it to stay afloat. BH can capture & kill their victims but they'd rather do it on video to keep the populace engulfed in fear about their brutality and remain news worthy, that's exactly what the Army is doing (bombarding the public with stories about their wins as well). On the flip, their announcement is arming the enemy with information on your strategic plans & that's not particularly the best.
