The Chairman of Innoson Motors, Dr Innocent Chukwuma, paid a courtesy visit to the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai at Maimalari Barracks, Maiduguri, Bornu State.
The Innoson boss also presented the latest design of Innoson IVM G12 series purposely designed for military operations to the Army chief.
According to Cornerl Osigwe, the spokesman of Innoson, “The Innoson IVM G12 series is a highly mobile and tactical pick up van with a double reinforced shock absorber that can show strength and ability to cope with military functions especially in our North-East terrain.”
Osigwe said the IVM G12 vehicles were also test driven by the Army drivers who attested to its rugged nature and suitability for rough terrains.
According to him, the COAS commended Innoson for locally manufacturing vehicles that can serve the specific needs of the military.
He said “Buratai also promised to partner with IVM in producing special purpose vehicles for their military operations.”
“Also we are already collaborating with the Army to manufacture and supply of Armored and Bullet-Proof Vehicles,” Osigwe added.
You will recall that Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing had earlier signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Nigerian Air Force (NAF)to provide spare parts for its fighter jets.
