A statement from Col. Sagir Musa, acting director army public relations said, “the Nigerian Army in partnership with Proforce Nigeria Limited, – an indigenous Armour Vehicle Manufacturing Company based in Ode-Remo in Ogun State had delivered the first ever Nigerian Army – Proforce locally manufactured MRAPs, four of which were inaugurated on August 1, 2019 by the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, at the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, Abuja.”

The statement quoted the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusufu Buratai, represented by the Chief of Training and Operations (Army) Maj Gen EO Udoh, as saying that the induction of the MRAPs would boost the operational capability and protection of the troops to decisively prosecute the ongoing counter insurgency operations.
