The Nigerian Army has alerted Abuja residents that it will be conducting a battle simulation exercise on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 25 and 26, 2023.
The exercise will take place at the 7 Guards Battalion Obstacle Course in Lungi Barracks, Maitama, and will involve real-time battlefield simulations and activities.
The Acting Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, Njideka Agwu, said in a statement on Monday that the exercise is part of activities scheduled for the Inter Formation Combat Platoon Obstacle Crossing Competition 2023.
Agwu stated. “Hence, there would be large battle sounds that would be heard during the exercise, which are in line with the training exercise,”
Agwu, however, urged members of the general public who reside around Maitama, Asokoro, AYA, and the environs not to panic but to go about their normal respective business.
She said the battle sounds would not raise any security concerns, as all necessary safety measures have been put in place.
