According to rwport reaching oyogist.com, the Borno state Governor, Babagana Zulum, has reportedly announced a Christmas largese for 700 soldiers for their gallantry in protecting Borno’s commercial Bama town.
The Governor made this known during his visit to the headquarters of 151 Battalion in Bama, where he announced his plan of compensating over 700 soldiers for their gallantry in fighting Boko Haram.
According to his statement, he said; “While we have challenges in some areas, we have successes in others, and one of those areas is this 151 Battalion because you have never been defeated by the Boko Haram since formation.
“This battalion has largely stabilised the areas under your jurisdiction here in Bama. I am here to, on behalf of government and the people of Borno State, register our appreciation.
“We came with our widow’s mite. Food will come your way and I have given a message to your commanders which will reach each one of you.
“Nothing can compensate for your sacrifices. We are grateful and we pray that Allah continues to protect all of you here and all our troops and volunteers and sustain your strength to remain undefeated.”
