Operation Safe Haven troops clean up Jos streets to boost civil-military relations

As part of its non kinetic approach to wooing communities in the Plateau and other areas of responsibility under it, troops of the Special Military Task Force, Operation Safe Haven on Monday December 16 2019, conducted a clean up exercise of some streets in Jo’s metropolis.

Personnel of Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), the military special task force in charge of security in Plateau, on Monday cleaned some streets in Jos as part of its Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC).

Commander of the Special Task For e, Major General Augustine Agundu disclosed that the clean up support was part of the outfit’s civil military routine activities aimed at consolidating on operational successes.

Represented by Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Bello, Agundu said the programme was aimed at boosting the operation’s relationship with the civilian population.

His words, “The year is coming to an end; so, we have series of civil military cooperation activities that will culminate into end-of-year final workshop.

“Today we have a symbolic clean-up, the idea is for the people to know that we are fighting but we also care for the communities.

“This is to let the people know that security personnel under Operation Safe Haven are concerned about the plight of the civil populace.

“There are three major events earmarked for the programme which include a sanitation exercise within Jos North Metropolis and which we are doing today.

“Tomorrow is the commissioning of the reconstructed Community Town Hall at Mangu Halle in Mangu Local Government Area.

“And on Wednesday there will be the 2nd Edition of Plateau Youth Summit,” he said.

The OPSH Commander called on members of the public to always cooperate with the taskforce to enable it to achieve its mandate of protecting lives and property.
