The Anglican  Bishop  of Maiduguri   Diocese, Rt  Reverend  Emmanuel  Morris  has  commended  officers and  men of the  7 Division Nigerian Army for the active  roles and services rendered by the Division in  combating   Boko Haram terrorists, adding that only God can reward them enough for the sacrifices.

He  made the commendation during his visit to the. Headquarters of 7 Division of the Nigerian army in Maiduguri cantonment Borno State saying that God used military  to salvage the  North East from Boko Haram invasion and made it possible for the citizens to go about their  lawful duties.

“We are not ignorant of  your sacrifices to  the nation and that is what necessitated this visit  to show  appreciation. You are peace makers and peace is a concept that has to do with life.

“We as religious leaders will continue  to offer prayers for divine protection over you and your house hold,” he said.

Earlier, the acting General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 division, Brigadier General Ibrahim Manu  Yusuf in his response commended the Bishop for his visit which he said was a spiritual upliftment to the division and the entire troops of Operation Dole.

He said that religious harmony was key to sustainable peace in a secular society like Nigeria and called for a better understanding and tolerance among religious leaders in the country.

The GOC also used the opportunity of the visit to solicit for support of the religious leaders in the ongoing operation to flush out Boko  Haram in the region by giving relevant information that will aid the troops in their operations.
