The Nigerian Army has disclosed that the war against Boko Haram in the North-East has been renamed Operation Kadin Kai from Operation Lafiya Dole.

The change was approved by the Chief of the Army Staff, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, in a statement issued on Friday, noting it would fortify the fight against insurgency, SaharaReporters reports.

According to the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig Gen Muhammed Yerima, the army was determined in its drive to exterminate Boko Haram in the North-East region.

Yerima said, “The Chief of Army Staff has approved the renaming of the ongoing Counterinsurgency Operation in the North East from Operation Lafiya Dole (OPLD) to Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK).

“Also affected by the re-designation are the Army Super Camps which now reflect the nomenclature of the formations and units followed by the name of the locations they occupy while sub-units are redesigned as Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) followed by the name of their locations. All these changes are with immediate effect.

“The renaming is in line with the COAS Vision of having ‘a Nigerian Army that is Repositioned to Professionally Defeat all Adversaries in a Joint Environment’. It is the belief of the COAS that the complete defeat of insurgency is a process that requires the participation of the entire nation using all elements of national power.

“He further assured that the NA under his leadership will continue to pursue the path of jointness in prosecuting the counterinsurgency war.”

Despite the assurances of the military, the Boko Haram in recent weeks have continued to trouble various communities and army operational bases in Borno and Yobe states, leading to massive loss of lives and ammunition in the theatre of operation.
