His numerous successful operations, which has led to the elimination of an unknown number of terrorists and the demolition of their sanctuaries and strongholds, can never be discounted or lessened, even if they go unnoticed in Nigerian newspapers or on television.

Lt Col I.A Manga combines both kinetic and non-kinetic efforts to win his battles as a thoroughbred professional military commander with a good understanding of the mechanics of asymmetric warfare, the type he engaged in the north east.

He has also, on many occasions, assisted in the restoration (rebuilding) of commuter roads by helping to refill potholes on the roads.
