The Czech Republic has donated a large consignment of arms, ammunitions and other weaponry to the Nigerian Army to boost its counter insurgency operations in the northeast part of the country.
The donation is coming barely a week after the Army received a similar arms consignment another one of its foreign partners.
Receiving the weapons in Abuja on behalf of the Army chief at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, leader of the reception team, Brigadier General Olufemi Akinjobi, who described the donation as timely, said it would go a long way to boost the recently launched Operation LAST HOLD, which is also the final battle to dislodge the Boko Haram terrorists from operating in any part of the country.
He also described the donations as a timely intervention scheme for the utilization of the ongoing Operation LAFIYA DOLE in the northeast.
