#Buyaija: Nigerian Army Inaugurates locally made patrol vehicles



The Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, inaugurated the vehicles made by men of the Nigerian Army and also performed the groundbreaking ceremony for a new army cantonment known as Muhammadu Buhari Cantonment at Giri, on Airport Road, Abuja.

The Chief of Army of Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai explained that the vehicles were locally designed and fabricated by personnel of the Nigerian Army after extension research.

Buratai said that the platform would further serve as force motivation, as efforts were being stepped up to clear remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in the Northeast, noting that the vehicles had already been deployed to the region.

According to him, the vehicles are one of the platforms used for firepower demonstration during the 2017 Nigerian Army Small Arms Championship (NASAC) earlier held at the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

He further explained that the vehicles could be used for long-range battles as they could be mounted with General Purpose Machine Gun-GPMG and other caliber of weapon.

Buratai said: “The inauguration of the patrol vehicles is part of the overall strategy toward the establishment of a military industrial complex which is expected to be a major employer of labour when it takes off.’’
