As Nigeria deploys another 800 Nigerian Army troops to the Darfur region of Sudan, army authorities have reminded them of the United Nation’s zero tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse while in the mission area.
General Officer Commanding (GOC), 2 Division Nigerian Army, Major General Ahmed Tijjani Jibrin made the remind Friday while addressing officers and men of 322 battalion ready for deployment on United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID).
He warned the troops to stay away from trafficking of illicit drugs and sexual exploitation while noting that the Nigerian Army will not tolerate situations where troops are disarmed.
The GOC who was the guest of honour at the graduation ceremony of the troops’ pre-deployment training at Nigeria Army Peace Keeping Centre (NAPKC), Jaji said gone were the days when the rules of engagement were not clear to peacekeepers, leading them to misconduct.
