Nigerian Army establishes military base in Southern Kaduna


The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has laid the foundation stone for the Forward Operation Base (FOB) of 2 Battalion of the Nigerian Army in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna state.

The Nigerian Army School of Artillery in Kachia Local Government Area of the state had been the military formation in Southern Kaduna.

Speaking at the inauguration, Buratai said the army was committed to peace and security in all parts of Nigeria.


He said the need to find a lasting solution to incessant herdsmen/farmers crises rocking Southern Kaduna in recent times necessitated the setting up of the base.

Buratai urged Nigerians to learn to co-exist peacefully, adding “we need each other”.

He also noted that the Hausa and Fulani had been living together in the community for centuries, but wonder why they resorted to killing themselves.

“There is the need for understanding. It is a family issue that can be resolved amicably,” warning, however, that those responsible for killings and violence would not go unpunished.
