GOC to trouble-makers: Steer clear of South-east

General Officer Commanding (GOC), 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Enugu, Maj.-Gen.
Emmanuel Kabuk, has warned those who may want to foment trouble- to steerclear of the entire South-east.
Kabuk gave the warning yesterday in Enugu while addressing a joint security team patrol within Enugu metropolis and its environs.
The joint security team comprised personnel of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air-Force, Nigerian Police, Department of State Services and Police Mobile Squadron 3.
Others are Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps, Nigerian Immigration Services, Nigeria Customs Services and Anti-cultism Unit of Enugu state Police Command.
The GOC noted that the security agencies were uniting their strength together to better protect and defend law abiding citizens from misguided individuals and groups in the society.
He said: “We are observing this training together to further improve our efficiency and proficiency in the internal security duties as well as understand each other better in the line of duty.
With this exercise, we are clearly sounding a note of warning for trouble-makers to steer-clear the entire South-east and other places of 82 Division Areas of Responsibility.
“We want the existing peace in the South-east to continue unhindered.
We will not fold our arms as members of the security community in this state and the entire South-east and watch some misguided individuals or groups to molest and intimidated innocent and law abiding citizens.” Kabuk maintained that the security community was not pursuing anybody or group, but for peace to reign and that people to go about their lawful businesses.
According to him, “the law will surely take its course on criminals that want to distort the peace in South-east and Nigeria.” The joint security patrol was against the backdrop of the September 14 sitat-home order in the South-east by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
