The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, has operationalised the 37 Nigerian Defence Academy Demonstration Battalion in Afaka, Kaduna State.
This comes six months after the nation’s premier military institution came under an attack by armed men suspected to be bandits.
During the ceremony held on the premises of the NDA, Yahaya stated that timely review and adjustment of Order of Battle for the Nigerian Army has become imperative due to the fluidity and dynamic nature of contemporary threats to national security.
According to the army chief, the activation of the battalion is a practical demonstration of the force’s commitment to enhancing national security by complementing the capacity development efforts of the NDA, which has the mandate of producing quality junior military officers for the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
