The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has pledged to complement the armed forces to eliminate the Boko Haram terror.
Secretary of the union’s Borno State chapter, Alhaji Ahmadu Musa, made the pledge as the Nigerian Army this past weekend inducted a combat motorbike battalion at the Headquarters of 25 Task Force Brigade, Damboa, Borno State.
Musa commended the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieut. Gen. Tukur Yusufu Buratai, and the Army for their sacrifices and the initiative he said would enhance safety and security on the roads.
He promised the continuous support of his organisation to the Army towards the mopping up of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists.
Musa further assured the COAS that they would display and distribute the banner containing the photographs of the wanted suspected Boko Haram terrorists to all their branches and other chapters.
The Nigerian Army on Saturday launched the second set of 100 wanted suspected Boko Haram terrorists.
Earlier at the event held in Damboa, Buratai inducted a combat motorbike battalion at the Headquarters of 25 Task Force Brigade.
Buratai, inducting the unit, stated that the essence of the battalion was to open and secure motorways from various towns to and from Maiduguri and other parts of Yobe State.
The battalion will serve as a force multiplier in the clearance operations of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists.
