Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole has said residents of the state are proud of the services of the Armed Forces to the peace and security of the state and the nation, especially their defeating of Boko Haram terrorists.
The governor spoke at the 18th Combat Service Support Training Week of the Nigerian Army Corps of Supply and Transport in Benin, the state capital.
He noted that the Army had gone beyond its call of duty in protecting the nation’s territorial integrity to also ensure internal security.
Oshiomhole said: “I cannot imagine what would have become of this state’s security if we did not have the support of the Armed Forces going beyond their conventional call of duty to support the police and the State Security Service (DSS) for the security of our people. None of us ever thought that security was far more complicated. It goes beyond defending, as they say, the territorial integrity to dealing with internal issues of insurgency in ways that are so complicated. A few years back, many of us would never have thought of the possibility of a full-blooded Nigerian carrying out what they would refer to as suicide bombing.”
