“So, What Do They Do With Their Trainings?” - Twitter User Reacts To Chief Of Defence Statement

The chief of defence has said that Nigerian soldiers are not well trained to fight bandits and Boko Haram.

The Chief of Defence staff said that the Nigerian government didn't train its soldiers to fight in an asymmetric warfare, adding that new tactics need to be embraced because of asymmetric security threats in the country.

The Chief of defence staff disclosed this on Wednesday during a dinner that was held in honour of officers of the Senior Course 43 of Command and Staff College Jaji, Kaduna State.

Gen. Lucky Irabor, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) however, said that the Nigerian Military are developing new capabilities essential to tackle the security challenges across Nigeria.

In his words, he said, “As you are aware, asymmetric warfare encourages the use of non-traditional military tactics, for which our previous training and operational doctrines were not well suited.”

He said the military are developing new capabilities in intelligence and surveillance, these new techniques will make the military ahead of terrorists and insurgents, and other criminal elements in the society.

Furthermore he added that the military will continue to review it techniques and training so that they can win asymmetric wars.

However, reacting to his statement, a twitter user asked what the Nigerian military do with their training then since they can't fight Boko Haram and bandits.

He said, “What do they do with their trainings?”
