Dismantle all check points, Buhari directs CDS, IG

Nigeria Chief of Defense staff, Alex Badeh and Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, in a meeting with officials of the Ministry of Defense at the state house, has both received orders by President Muhammadu Buhari to dismantle all military check points nationwide, ITRealms reports.

In a report released by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) permanent secretary, Ministry of Defence, Malam Ismail, confirmed the statement at a press briefing.

“The President has instructed the Chief of Defense Staff to get the Chief of Army Staff and the Inspector General of Police to remove all the military men along the roads across the country,” he said.

Speaking further on arrangements made so far in the implementation of decisions reached during the Lake Chad Basin Commission, Ismail said, “Nigerian armed forces are very ready, we have briefed him but one most interesting thing about it is that we are going out much happier because he has shown us he is still a soldier.”

On the relocation of the military command centre in Nigeria to Borno, he noted that the issue was extensively discussed, stressing that the centre would soon be fully operational.

The Permanent Secretary also expressed optimism on the issue of Boko Haram boldly declaring that based on the hopes given them by the President, he feels happy going to fight the war as he sees peace and security in the very near future
