“The team,  which is led by a two-star General,  has already commenced work in earnest and it is comprised of elements of the office of the Chief of Army Staff,  all the relevant Army Headquarters Departments and other combat support components.  The centre will serve as a forward command Base for the Chief of Army Staff and other Service Chiefs.

“The Centre is essentially an elaboration of an already existing Army Headquarters Command and Control arrangement. From now on,  the fight against terrorism and insurgency would be monitored,  coordinated and controlled from the centre.  I wish to inform you that it’s establishment would not create another layer of command structure but would add impetus and renewed vigour to Operation Zaman Lafiya,  all aimed at bringing terrorism and insurgency to an end.  An alternate command centre is also being established in Yola.”
