“They have been doing so well to keep Delta peaceful and we are very grateful and we hope that this will add up to the vehicular needs that will enable them carry out their operations,” he said.

The ceremony’s high point was the handing over of Army vehicle keys to the 63 Brigade Commander, Brig. Gen. Abdulraman Idris, and the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Ari.
