The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3 Division and Commander Operation SAFE HAVEN (OPSH), Major-General AE Abubakar, has charged troops of 3 Division to be proficient in using their weapons on enemies of the state and ensure its safety among comrades.
The GOC gave the charge recently at the end of the Bi-annual Range Classification Exercise organized for both officers and soldiers to improve the proficiency of troops in handling weapons.
While noting that the country was facing multifaceted security challenges, the GOC also charged the troops to master the art of using their weapons effectively.
