Maj.-Gen. Hassan Dada, commander of the Joint Task Force in the Southeast Operation Udo Ka, has emphasized that restoring peace to the southeast region is his top priority.

A sallah lunch was held at the naval station, Oguta council area of Imo, on Thursday. While addressing the troops and security staff, Dada, who is also the General Officer Commanding (GOV) 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, made this statement.

To guarantee the return and maintenance of calm in the region for sustainable economic development, the Commander unwaveringly promised support to civic authorities.

Adding that the operation’s security professionals deserved praise for their resiliency, he said that their combined efforts were crucial to the accomplishment that has been achieved thus far.

While reiterating his dedication to maintaining peace in the division’s domains of responsibility, the Commander extended his gratitude to Lt.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, Chief of Army Staff, and Gen. Christopher Musa, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), for their morale, logistical, and other forms of support.

We will not rest until complete peace returns, but there has been a huge improvement in security as a result of the persistent efforts of our troops and security professionals of Operation Udo Ka.

He emphasized the importance of the general public joining the fight against insecurity and encouraged them to freely provide information that would help them in their endeavors.

Commodore Mohammed Salisu, the operation’s Maritime Component Commander, had earlier stated in his introductory remarks that the purpose of the meal was to raise morale among commanders and troops in order to improve the operation.

He reassured that the operation would “continue to leverage its successes” for ongoing operations and pushed for further cooperation among security services.

He expressed his gratitude to Imo Gov. Hope Uzodinma for creating the favorable conditions necessary to conduct the operation, particularly in some regions of the state.

Brigadier General Usman Lawal, who is in charge of the 34th Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Obinze and the operation’s land component, expressed gratitude to the CDS for providing all the necessary equipment and logistical assistance during his visit to Owerri.

In addition, he vowed to do his part to ensure the safety of Imo, the southeast region, and all of Nigeria.
