The Nigerian Army (NA) has started the massive recruitment into Short Service Commission and Direct Service Commission.
The force made this via his official social media accounts on twitter and facebook on Wednesday, August 14, adding that its website is now open for application.
The army, however, added that interested applicant are advised only to make applications through his website.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the NA announced the acquisition of four Mine Resistant Anti Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAPs) as part of its strategies to intensify effort in the fight against Boko Haram.
A statement by the force on its official twitter handle also announced that the vehicles were acquired following partnership with an indigenous armour vehicle manufacturing company based in Ode-Remo in Ogun state.
It added that Proforce Nigeria Limited, which made the vehicles, did a commendable job in delivering first ever Nigerian Army proforce locally manufactured MRAP, four of which were inaugurated on August 1, 2019 by the chief of defence staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin.
The Chief of Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, asked soldiers to tread carefully in their dealings with police officers in the coming weeks.
Buratai, in a letter dated Friday, August 9, and copied to all the force’s formations nationwide, also admonished travelling military personnel to do so in mufti if necessary in order to avoid confrontations with policemen.
The letter, which has the reference number AHQDAIOPS/G3/240/232 and written on behalf of the COAS by Brig. General F Omoigui, was titled, ‘Need for troops to be circumspect in dealing with members of the Nigeria Police.’
