He said, January 15, every year brings the attention of the nation to the heroic sacrifices that officers and men of the Nigerian armed forces made in service to their fatherland, many of whom paid the supreme sacrifice with their lives.

“While the core mandate of the Nigerian armed forces is that of defending the territorial integrity and oneness of the nation, today the military have had to be deployed to maintaining internal security as home-bred terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and separatist tendencies have assumed far more destabilizing threats than any external aggression.

Gyang joins the nation to salute and honour the memory of fallen heroes and commends the commitment of our armed forces as they undertake and prosecute the war against terrorism, banditry (now formally classified as terrorism), kidnapping, etc.”
