The Nigerian Army sixth Division has declared that it would begin its yearly reach characterization practice from Sunday, June 13 to Sunday, June 27.

Lt.-Col. Charles Ekeocha, the division’s spokesman said on Friday that the exercise is aimed at ascertaining the professional competence of troops on the use of firearms.

He said troops from the division and its affiliated formations and units would conduct the exercise at the Army Shooting Range in Igwuruta and Elele Barracks, both in Ikwerre Council.

“The shooting exercise is a routine activity in the Nigerian Army which involves the firing of various calibre live ammunition.

“Members of the public, especially residents of Igwuruta and Elele, as well as its environs, are advised to keep away from the general shooting area,” he stated.

The army spokesman also advised the public not to panic over the movement of troops, military hardware and sound of gunshots.
