Minister of Defence, General Bashir Magashi ( rtd) on Sunday charged troops to step up the fight against terrorism and not be afraid of bullets from the terrorists.
“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”, Magashi said during a morale-boosting visit to the troops in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
He was accompanied on the visit by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Lt. Gen. Lucky Irabor, and service chiefs.
The defence minister assured the troops of government’s readiness to improve on their welfare just as the Chief of Defence Staff said the troops were grateful for the minister’s visit.
