The Nigerian Army has warned trouble makers to steer clear of South East region.
General Officer Commanding, GOC, 82 Division Enugu, Major General Emmanuel Kabuk gave the warning while addressing a joint security team patrol within Enugu metropolis and its environs, yesterday.
This came as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), declared September 14 sit-at-home to remember those died in the hands of soldiers of Operation Python Dance II and invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s home on September 2017.
The military had warned that it was well prepared to crush IPOB following the announcement of the sit-at-home exercise.
The joint security team comprised of personnel of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air-Force, Nigerian Police, Department of State Security 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.
“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 of the entire South-East and other places of 82 Division Areas of Responsibility,” he said.
“The law will surely take its course on criminals that want to disturb the peace in South-East and Nigeria,” he added.
The joint patrol team comprises over 50 vehicles that patrolled major roads and streets in Enugu and its environs.
