Inaugurated in 2019 under the leadership of former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai (rtd), the Nigerian Army Women Corps’ concept was to harness the potential of female officers and soldiers to build a force ready to support the Nigerian Army operations and engagements.

Since its formation, the women’s corps has been playing an active role in various military operations, especially internal security within troubled regions of the country.
