It was President Muhammadu Buhari as the Commander in Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces that approved the Operation Positive Identity which commenced November 1, 2019, The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Tukur Buratai, has revealed.

 

Buratai said this when he appeared before the House of Representatives committee investigating the operation scheduled to commence on Friday November 1 through December 23, 2019 and would require citizens to move about with a means of identification.

 

Buratai, represented by Major General Usman Muhammed, Chief of Civil-Military Affairs said the President and Minister of Defence are in support of the operation saying the exercise, first launched in the north-east in September, is being extended nationwide to intercept Boko Haram insurgents who had relocated from their enclaves to other parts of the country.
