Nigeria’s Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, has asked troops fighting the insurgents in the North East not to be afraid of bullets and that they should be more daring in their fight against insurgents.
Speaking during a morale-boosting visit to the troops in Maiduguri, Borno state over the weekend, Magashi, a retired Brig.-Gen. said what should be on the minds of the troops while battling insurgents should be to secure the country.
“You should not be afraid of the bullet because it can even meet you in the house if it means you dying by it. But if you are not meant to die by the bullet, it will never kill you even at the heart of a war.”
The minister assured them of the government’s readiness to improve on their welfare.
