Army Inaugurates ‘Desktop Phones’ For Troops In Borno – The Nigerian Army has inaugurated the ‘first set of internet protocol desktop telephones’ at the 8 Task Force Division in Northern Borno to enable troops communicate with their families with ease.

This was disclosed in a statement by Onyema Nwachukwu, a Colonel and Deputy Director, Army Public Relations Department, on Friday in Maiduguri.

He said: “The Nigerian Army has inaugurated the first set of internet protocol desktop telephone in some locations of the 8 Task Force Division in Northern Borno.

“The essence is to alleviate the sufferings of troops who spend two to three hours travelling to Maiduguri to communicate with their families on phone.

“The telephone system, which comprises of a very small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) and a Grand Stream handset, were installed at the headquarters of the taskforce in Monguno, in 7 Brigade Baga and 153 Task Force Battalion in Marte.

“Each of the call centres provides five terminal points for officers and soldiers to communicate with their families from the front lines.  It has mitigated the rigour of travelling several hours by troops to Maiduguri to access telecommunication facility to communicate with their loved ones”.
