Former Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai has said that Boko Haram terrorists, bandits, members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other criminal bodies are afraid of General Taoreed Lagbaja who was recently confirmed as the Chief of Army Staff (COAS).
This is as he praised the COAS following his order to troops to wipe out terrorism and banditry in Nigeria.
Sharing a video of the new army chief directing troops to wipe out all criminal elements and stop the killings in Plateau state, the former Governor tweeted;
“A new kind of chief of army staff who without a doubt will wipe out terrorism, banditry, vandalism and militancy in Nigeria. I know the new COAS very well. Gen Taoreed Lagbaja was my last GOC as governor of Kaduna state. He always leads from the front anywhere he is.
“He personally led troops to confront bandits in Kaduna state. He did the same in the north-east and south-east. The operatives of Boko Haram, IPOB, ESN and the bandits know well and fear him. He is the best choice as COAS.
“This video says it all. Thank you general Lagbaja. Keep on doing what you have always done so well and with valour. God Bless you.”
