A former governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has assured that the new Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Taoreed Lagbaja, will wipe out terrorism and banditry in Nigeria.
El-Rufai stated this in a Twitter post on Saturday.
According to him, Boko Haram terrorists, bandits, members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and other criminal bodies are afraid of Lagbaja.
“I know the new COAS very well. Gen Taoreed Lagbaja was my last GOC as governor of Kaduna State. He always leads from the front, anywhere he is.
“He personally led troops to confront bandits in Kaduna State. He did the same in the north-east and south-east. The operatives of Boko Haram, IPOB, ESN, and the bandits know [him] well and fear him. He is the best choice as COAS,” El-Rufai tweeted.
