    finally! photos from the desert theater. a general improvement in troop kitting and fieldcraft. the days of sloppy deployment and ill equipped personnel are gladly behind us.
    kudos marshal beeg. we still need eye on the ground o, plz give it a good thought.

    Do hope the tent is locally sourced if it is, then i say bravo. The machine-gun nest barricade needs to be improved upon. Sweet shots.

      NA Ordnance Corps have fabricated a Nigerian-made airconditioned tent. This was on display during the Nigerian Army Day Celebration 2013 two weeks ago.

      Prior to that in 2009, the FG had imported a large number of airconditioned tents intended for desert operations and for the Army PKO FOBs (transit camp) at Abuja Airport and at Lagos from China, with DICON’s partners – Poly Technologies of China, facilitating.

      Some of those tents were also taken straight to the Multinational Joint Task Force stationed at Baga in our far northeast.

    I love the spartan look of the tents. And we are glad to see that……. yes special forces did play a role in Mali.

    Photographs indeed do not lie. PREMIUM TIMES have apparently run out of lies as it becomes ever more apparent that they are a posse of liars misrepresenting the reality on ground in Mali.

    – they said our troops were begging for food to eat in Mali; the Governor of Koulikoro region and Mayor of Banamba said they gave them gifts of rice and an ox in African solidarity

    – they said our troops are languishing in Bamako, unfit for the frontlines; we have photos of our troops at Banamba and the A-List frontline and terror-afflicted border town of Nara.

    PREMIUM TIMES remain a clueless platform for opposition hackwriters. They have been exposed for the charlattans that they are…so bad that they have posted photos of Malian soldiers where they meant to portray Nigerian troops. Quacks shall always be QUACKS

    Nigerian troops are in mali are stationed in the following parts of mali:
    banamba mali ( the main nigerian base in mali)
    Lere
    Diabaly
    The mali/mauritania border region
    And Timbucktu.

    It is safe to conclude that we do not have a PR officer in Mali then.

    As far as the actual military frontlines are concerned, the five most important terror-impacted AORs are Gao, Timbuktu, Kidal, Nara and Diabaly (scene of the most bitter fighting in the earliest days – January 2013). HOW CAN we have troops in THREE of those five towns, PLUS Lere and the gateway to the national capital, Banamba, yet a second-rate tabloid such as Premium Times have captured the imagination of many clueless persons with their relentless cascade of lies?

    It is befuddling. Someone needs to facilitate my trip to Mali – logistics, interviews and photo opportunities and I SHALL run Premium Times out of business once and for all. “Evil only thrives where good men do nothing.”
