Nigeria: 'Insurgency Hampered Kano Military Training for 2012'

Kano — Abba said at the weekend during the celebrations of the West African Social Activities, an annual traditional event held at the Bukavu Barracks in Kano, that despite the challenge the army was able to lend its support to peacekeeping missions both within and outside the country.

The commander, who said troops were sent to Plateau State and to Sudan to maintain peace, also said the army had successfully arrested the security challenges in its area of operation.

In his remarks, Colonel Abubakar Usman, the special adviser to Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso on security, commended the military for "maintaining the spirit of WASA", adding that the army also succeeded in keeping cordial relationship with the public.
