The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Brig-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, has warned agitators for Biafra that it will not fold its hands and allow treasonable felony, arson and hooliganism to prevail in the country.
“The warning to the agitators is to tell them that enough is enough,’’ Attahiru said, adding that it was inexcusable for troops to stand aside and watch the security situation deteriorate, leading to loss of lives or damage to property.
“The Nigerian Army would like to send an unequivocal warning to all and sundry, more specifically to all those threatening and agitating for the dismemberment of the country, committing treasonable felony and arson.
“Once deployed, the Nigerian Army shall apply the rules of engagement to the letter in order for peace to prevail,’’ he said.
According to Attahiru, the agitators had recorded cases of lawlessness in Aba, Port Harcourt, Onitsha, Abakaliki and Enugu.
