Nigeria’s Military Task force, otherwise known as Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), on Monday hosted a party for two homes housing internally-displaced persons and orphans

OPSH saddled with the responsibility to restore and maintain peace in three northern Nigerian States, namely, Plateau, some parts of Bauchi and Southern Kaduna, said the aim is to bring succor to citizens who were displaced by the long protracted crisis that engulfed the State for over a decade.

Speaking to newsmen at the occasion organised for the children, the Military General in charge of the OPSH, Maj. Gen. Agustin Agundu said his Command will continue to support the troubled and the less privileged, especially those displaced as a result of crisis.

“Anytime I visit the IDPs’ camps, I leave with a heavy heart as most of them are going through very difficult situations and that is why I feel elated to be here today to celebrate this season with them: I truly hope it will make them forget their sorrow, even if it is only for a moment”, the Army boss said.

Gen. Agundu also said that he is celebrating Christmas with Orphans and IDPs to attest to the success so far recorded in attaining and sustaining peace in Plateau, adding that the celebration demonstrated the resilience of his troops in ensuring that normalcy returns to the State.
