I am delighted to welcome our esteemed readers to yet another exciting and informative publication of the 'Nigerian Defence Magazine,' the flagship of military information.
This edition has been packaged with highly educational articles, features and news stories on recent developments and events within the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) and the operational engagements of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN)
Suffice to mention that from the period of the publication of the last edition, the AFN recorded tremendous progress in the various internal security operations across the nation. These operational strides are attributable to the strategic guidance being provided the AFN by its current leadership under the command of General Gabriel Abayomi Olonisakin, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), in pursuant of his vision to ensure a well motivated, trained and equipped Armed Forces that is responsive to national security commitments
On behalf of the Editorial Team, I most sincerely thank the CDS for his immense support towards making this edition of the Nigerian Defense Magazine a reality. May I also express appreciation to our esteemed readers for their unwavering support and encouragement so far.
I wish you happy reading
