The Nigerian military has announced its second bi-annual field training exercise in Kaduna.
The drill will begin on November 22 at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC) in Jaji.
Public Relations Officer, Major Ajemasu Jingina issued a statement on Thursday.
The training code-named ‘Exercise Ubiak-Isin’ will be held along Jaji-Labar-Dunki-Bina-Wazata general area in Igabi Local Government.
Student officers of Junior Course 92 are to be assessed on leadership, tactics, command, and control in all phases of conventional and asymmetric warfare.
The exercise will also evaluate students’ understanding of counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations.
