The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II has come out to beg the Federal Government to encourage the military in their fight against insecurity.

The Monarch recently revealed this when the new General Officer Commanding 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General GU Chibisi paid a working visit to the Palace of the Oba of Benin.

According to him, FG can help the Nigeria Army through a better welfare package and provision of needed equipment for their operations, as that will assist in the current battle against bandits and terrorists.

He added that an enhanced salary and allowances coupled with a workable insurance and housing scheme for army personnels would serve as a huge morale booster in curtailing all forms of insecurity issues in the country.
