Don’t be afraid of bullets — Defence minister tells troops

Defence Minister, Bashir Magashi, has challenged troops to step up the fight against terrorists by becoming more daring and should not be afraid of “the bullet.”

Speaking on Sunday, April 18, during a morale-boosting visit to the troops in Maiduguri, Borno State, the retired Brig.-Gen. said what should be on the minds of the troops while battling insurgents  should  be to secure the country.

“You should not be afraid of the bullet because it can even meet you in the house if it means you dying by it. But if you are not meant to die by the bullet, it will never kill you even at the heart of a war,” he said.
