The Acting GOC, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Brig-Gen Ibrahim Atahiru has warned pro-Biafran agitators to refrain now or face the wrath of his men. This warning, he said, has become necessary to put a stop to a possible breakdown of law and order, loss of lives and destruction of property.
Brig-Gen Atahiru said once deployed the army would have no option but to apply the Rule Of Engagement to the last letter in order to restore peace considering reported cases of lawlessness that have been reported across cities in the south-east.
Said he, “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.
The army had to unavoidably wade in having taken enough time to study the situation.
