Eneche said;

“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way everything will be done.

“We have ordered for PPE for troops at the frontlines.

“The moment they (Boko Haram members) are captured, they are quarantined and given face masks while observing social distancing too.

“Captured or surrendered enemies are treated in line with the Geneva Convention. COVID-19 has changed the way things are done at the frontlines and in barracks.

“In addition to the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) primary responsibility of producing defence equipment, it has succeeded in diversifying its human, equipment, machinery as well as research and development capacity, to support a much-needed strategic intervention to cushion the effects of the highly dreaded COVID 19 in the country”.
