The Force Commander of the Multi-National Joint Task Force, Major General Abdul Ibrahim has reassured troops that the MNJTF Headquarters will reinforce their operational capacities with equipment and other essential materials, which will improve surveillance and tactical manoeuvre in the fields.

He also cautioned about the misuse of social media which he said usually does more harm than good as it can be a source of information on the activities and movements of the troops to terrorists.

Ibrahim made the comments during a visit to the Forward Operating Base at the Mallam Fatori and Headquarters 5 Brigade at Damasak in Northern Borno State.

The Forward Operation Base and unit have won several tactical victories against the Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) insurgents in their previous encounters,  paving the way for the resettlement and relocation of internally displaced persons and refugees to their ancestral homes in the northeast.
