Further Attacks on Troops Will Be Met with Overwhelming Force – DHQ Issues Stern Warning

83

The Nigerian military has vowed to deal decisively persons or groups who take delight in attacking it’s personnel or troops. The warning follows a tragic incident, where troops of Operation UDO KA deployed at Obikabia Junction Checkpoint in Abia State were brutally attacked and killed by IPOB/ESN terrorists on May 30, 2024.

The attack, which claimed the lives of 5 personnel, has sparked a strong response from the military, with a warning that such assaults will be met with fierce retaliation.

According to a press release from the Director Defence Media Operations, Major General Edward Buba, the troops were deployed to maintain peace and protect citizens in the area when they were ambushed by terrorists in three tinted Prado Toyota SUVs and others from surrounding buildings. The attack resulted in the loss of five brave soldiers, a devastating blow to the armed forces.

Regrettably six civilians also lost their lives during the cross-fire.

The military has condemned the attack, stating that each lost soldier is a significant loss. Investigations are ongoing to uncover the perpetrators and their motives. However, it is clear that the terrorists’ strategy relies on the support of the local population, and the military is urging citizens to withdraw their support and reject the IPOB/ESN’s violent agenda.

In a stern warning, the military has vowed to retaliate against this heinous act with overwhelming force, bringing immense pressure on the group to ensure their total defeat. The military will not tolerate such attacks on its personnel and will take decisive action to protect its troops and the nation.
