President Muhammadu Buhari has inaugurated the first-ever made in Nigeria military war vehicle.
The war vehicle was inaugurated in Kaduna on Tuesday. It is to be used for military operations in the north-east.

The vehicle was manufactured by Defence Industrial Corporation of Nigeria, Kaduna.
Apart from the vehicle code-named ‘Ezugwu’, the president also inaugurated an ultra-modern army hospital.

Speaking at the event, Buhari condoled with all the soldiers who have lost their lives in the bid to keep the country safe.

“This government is aware that the activities of the army come with key consequences, with some personnel who have sustained various injuries,” he said.

“I once again send my condolences to those who have paid the supreme sacrifice in an effort to secure this country. May their souls rest in peace.

“I urge our soldiers to continue to abide by their ethics and keep to the rules of engagement and code of conduct while ensuring that human rights and international humanitarian laws are promoted and respected in the conduct of military operations.”

The president added that a lot had been achieved by the army since he assumed office.
