Military To Launch Operation Against Violent Herdsmen – Defence Spokesman


The Nigerian Military will soon launch an operation to tackle security challenges posed by herdsmen across the country, the Acting Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar, has said. Abubakar made the disclosure at an interractive media session in Kaduna on the role of the media in national security.

 “We are coming out with another operation code named “Operation Accord” to address the issue of herdsmen clashes,” Abubakar said. He disclsoed that the military had carried out 13 operations to ensure peace and order across the country. The defence spokesman assured that the military would not allow any individual or group to destabilise Nigeria.

 “We will not spare any security threat in any part of the country, we will contain it; national security will not be compromised. “Today, no Nigeria territory is under the control Boko Haram, no illegal flag foisted on our land.

 “We will synergise with other security agencies to secure the remaining Chibok school girls, and everyone who is under Boko Haram custody.” 

He urged the media to support the military in the course of its duties in protecting Nigeria’s territorial integrity and its people. Abubakar stressed that the media remained a veritable tool of mass mobilization and enlightenment of the populaces on what the military was doing to secure the country “Media is an important organ that we cannot ignore especially during security operations. 

“The essence is to collaborate and synergise to make citizens understand what the Armed Forces is doing to keep Nigeria one as a nation. “National security is not about guns and uniforms, it is beyond that, our concern is the safety of our citizens and their property, so that one can move freely without any security threat.” 

He therefore tasked journalists to be professional and patriotic in the discharge of their duties, and desist from promoting hate speeches capable of incting violence.
