The Nigerian Army, NA, weekend, announced plans to construct an infantry battalion barracks at Ibodi-Ilesha in Osun State.

The barracks, expected to accommodate a minimum of 700 soldiers, will be sited on a 250 hectares of land donated to the Nigerian Army by Ibodi community.

Accepting the offer at the Oloja’s palace in Osun State, Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, disclosed that construction work would begin immediately.

Ihejirika, who was represented by the Commander, Corps of Engineers, NA, Maj-Gen Funsho Owonibi, said work would start with the survey of the land by Army experts.

He was quick to add that owners of economic trees on the donated land would be compensated in accordance with the Federal Government laws, after Army experts would have surveyed the land to ensure it was up to the donated hectares.

The survey team, led by Major Suridik Oshodi, he said, would commence work on the charting and delineating of the land, to include the perimeter and topographical survey of the land ceded to the army
