The new Theatre Commander for the Joint Task Force Operation Hadin Kai, Maj.-Gen. Christopher Musa, on Friday assumed duty in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Musa’s appointment followed the elevation of the former Theatre Commander, Maj.-Gen. Farouq Yahaya, as the Chief of Army Staff (COAS).
“Asymmetric warfare like Boko Haram, is a continuous war. It is evolving and we have to also evolve in our approach,” Musa said.
The commander also solicited the support of the media in the counter-insurgency operation.
He pledged to maintain openess in his leadership of the newly reconstituted military Joint Task Force. (NAN)
