Nigerian Army Seeks Traditional Rulers’ Support To Tackle Insecurity.

The Commander of the 32 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Mukhtar Adamu, says the cooperation and support of traditional rulers in Ondo state towards fighting crimes cannot be overemphasized.

He made the call at the weekend when he paid a courtesy visit to the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi at his palace in Akure.

The Brigade Commander who is in charge of security in both Ondo and Ekiti states, said he deemed it necessary to pay homage and solicit for the support and blessings of the Royal father since assumed duty.


Adamu added that the Nigerian Army also requires the cooperation of traditional institutions as contained in the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) vision which is to have “A Professional Nigerian Army ready to Accomplish Assigned Mission within a Joint Environment in Defence of Nigeria”.

The commander noted that the key term there is the “Joint Environment” which is not limited to other security agencies but traditional institutions as well. He averred that the citizenry are valuable for meaningful and sustainable operational success.

The Deji of Akure, Oba Ogunlade Aladelusi in his response, appreciated the Nigerian Army for its support to the Nation particularly Akure kingdom.

Oba Aladelusi, therefore,
pledged to continue to support the Military in achieving its operational mandate in the state.
