Former military president, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, has stated that the Nigerian military is overstretched.

Babangida stated this while adding that the military still has the capacity to win the war against the insurgency and banditry in the north.

Babangida made this known in an interview aired on Friday, August 6.

He was quoted to have said: “The military, I believe, has the wherewithal to fight this banditry and bring it to an end. But I believe that they are overstretched because of the space that they have to occupy.”

The elder statesman also cited obsolete equipment as one of the key militating factors against the prosecution of the ongoing counter-insurgency war and the battle against banditry.

He, however, said that one of the requirements for a successful military campaign was that the military must believe in what they are fighting for.
