Gen Ni­cholas re­sumes as Op­er­a­tion Safe Haven com­man­der

Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

Ma­jor Gen­eral Rogers Ni­chols has taken com­mand of Op­er­a­tion Safe Haven, the multi-ser­vice se­cu­rity task­force in charge of main­tain­ing peace in Plateau and parts of Bauchi State.

Daily Trust re­ports that the ap­point­ment of a sub­stan­tive com­man­der for the task force fol­lowed the re­tire­ment of Ma­jor Gen­eral Tagbo Ude in June. The task­force has since been com­manded by the chief of Staff, Bri­gadier Gen­eral Ab­dul­salam Bagudu Ibrahim.

Gen­eral Ni­cholas who took com­mand yes­ter­day at the OPSH head­quar­ters in Jos urged of­fi­cers to re­spect their host com­mu­ni­ties with­out com­pro­mis­ing hu­man rights and pro­fes­sion­al­ism. “The peo­ple you are pro­tect­ing are Nige­ri­ans. They are your broth­ers and sis­ters, there­fore you must en­sure neu­tral­ity be­cause we will not hes­i­tate to deal with any of­fi­cer that takes sides,” he said.

Ear­lier, Gen­eral Ibrahim as­sured the new com­man­der that he was hand­ing over a safe Plateau as well as sound and ded­i­cated of­fi­cers ready to work with him.

Gen­eral Ni­cholas is now the 9th com­man­der of the task­force which was es­tab­lished in 2010 as Spe­cial Task Force fol­low­ing ethno-re­li­gious con­flicts in Plateau State.
