Crack Nigerian Army commandos, who just concluded a special training in the United States, have been deployed in the North to combat the terrorist attacks, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt.

Our correspondents gathered that the commandos were part of the personnel of the Nigeria Army who left the country for a crack training programme on counter terrorism in the US.A very reliable Federal Government source, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, put the number of those who departed the country for the first batch of counter insurgency training, at 300.
Another reliable source said those who participated in the programme were drawn from the Nigerian Army Engineering Anti-bomb Squad.
