The Army will soon move against separatist agitators such as Asari Dokubo and Sunday Igboho, Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. -Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, has stated. Attahiru’s warning was delivered in Uyo at the first Commanding Officers’ Workshop 2021.
Igboho recently unilaterally declared the South west part was no longer part of Nigeria.
Dokubo also announced establishment of Biafra Customary Government in which he incorporated some parts of the South east and South South as part of the territory.
But Attahiru promised the Army will deal decisively with every form of security threats confronting the nation, including those posed by the secessionist agitators like Igboho and Dokubo.
“The Nigerian Army under my leadership would remain proactive and jointly work with other security agencies to decisively deal with threats facing the nation.
“The Nigerian Army under my watch remains resolute and is poised more than ever before to decisively deal with individuals or groups that threaten the peace, security and stability of our great nation,” he vowed.
