Residents of Natsinta village, Jibia Local Government Area, Katsina State, have been urged to keep away from the 35 Battalion Range, which is located in Natsinta village, Jibia Local Government Area.
This is because on Friday, March 18, 2022, troops from 3 Brigade will be conducting a live ammunition shooting practice in the area.
Lieutenant Sinivie Tamuno, Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, 17 Brigade, made the announcement in a press statement issued to journalists.
“The exercise is part of the annual routine training activities of the Nigerian Army, usually conducted across Formations and Units to ensure proficiency and productivity amongst personnel,” Tamuno said
