The 243 Battalion of the Nigerian Army on Friday says it will hold a field training, which will involve shooting of guns in the Badagry neighbourhood of Lagos State.
This was contained in a statement signed and put out by Lieutenant Colonel Kingsley Samuel, the Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, in Lagos. In the statement, the 243 Battalion of the Nigerian Army is scheduled to hold a field training from June 20 to 24 at Ibereko, Badagry.
It further reads that the general public, particularly locals as well as farmers around Badagry to Kakon general area, are please requested to keep off the entire exercise area.
“They are not to panic on hearing gunshots while the field exercise lasts. The exercise is part of the training to keep the soldiers in shape. It is a routine exercise to keep the soldiers physically and mentally ready.”
