A German Advisory Team in charge of military equipment and programme aid has arrived the country with new support packages to aid Nigerian military in the ongoing war against Boko Haram.
This was contained in a statement by the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, yesterday, through its Director of Defence Information, DDI, Colonel Rabe Abubakar.
Abubakar said the team was at DHQ in Abuja, on visit to the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS.
Speaking during the visit, the DDI said the team leader, Colonel Thomas Brillisauer said the aim of the visit was to discuss new areas of support in the fight against insurgency in the country.
According to the German representative, Nigeria has been a reliable partner, therefore there was need to support her by prolonging and increasing the military relationship for the future of both countries.
The DDI noted that the German military was the sole trainer of the Armed Forces Electronic and Mechatronics Engineering (AFEME) Workshop and School.
Describing the engagement of the two countries as very cordial, Brillisauer stated that the German government is ever ready and willing to improve on the existing relationship by wading into the needs of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the ongoing war on terrorism which is different from other form of previous bilateral relation.
