Rotation of troops engaged in various counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations against Boko Haram terrorist group in the North-east has begun, the Nigerian Army said Monday, stating that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai, had given a clear directive that the military policy on rotation should be strictly adhered to.

THISDAY had in its June 3, 2018 edition published exclusively an investigative report, which revealed how battle-fatigued soldiers were forced to remain in the war front for almost three years without being relieved to rest and recuperate.

The Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. John Agim, had told THISDAY that the situation was actuated by the shortage of experienced fighters, explaining that its fighting force had been dispersed to deal with mounting internal security challenges in the country.

Trump, Kim in Historic Handshake as Summit Begins
Tue, 12 Jun 2018

United States President Donald Trump said a historic sumHistoric Summitmit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday had gone “better than anybody could have expected”, and they would sign a document following talks on ways to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.

Kim stood silently alongside Trump as he spoke to media during a post-lunch stroll through the gardens of the Singapore hotel where the summit was held, but the North Korean leader had earlier described their meeting as a “a good prelude to peace”.

“A lot of progress – really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected. Top of the line, very good. We’re going now for a signing,” Trump told journalists, without giving details on what would be signed.

Should they succeed in making a diplomatic breakthrough, it could bring lasting change to the security landscape of Northeast Asia, like the visit of former U.S. President Richard Nixon to China in 1972 led to the transformation of China.

Both men had looked serious as they got out of their limousines for the summit at the Capella hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa, a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, manmade beaches and a Universal Studios theme park.

But, with cameras of the world’s press trained on them, they displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie as they met on the verandah of the Capella, a refurbished 19th century British regimental officers’ mess.
