He also said troops must master the art of night operations and anti-ambush drills by engaging in effective night operations and anti-ambush drill training.

Yahaya said this on Friday in Abuja at the closing ceremony of the Chief of Army Staff Conference.

He ordered the troops to take the fight to the camps of the terrorists and bandits and ensure they were defeated.

Yahaya said, “Commanders must a look at the possibilities of conducting a wide range of operations against bandits and terrorists.

“Furthermore, commanders must ensure that their troops master the art of night operations and anti-ambush drills by engaging in effective night operations and anti-ambush drill training.

“We must take the fight to the adversary in order to neutralise and defeat them. Furthermore, commanders are also urged to develop contingency plans to ensure our forces always retain the initiative in all our theatres of operation.

“In that vein, commanders must plan for the possible increase in scope and dimension of the activities of violent state actors in the coming year.

“In the conduct of our operations, commanders must be proactive and aggressive in order to defeat the adversary. Let me state at this point that we must ensure all our deployments in the theatres of operations are held in strength to defeat any attack.”
