It also warned perpetrators to desist forthwith or face the music. Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, Director Army Public Relations in a statement on Sunday, said the Nigerian Army in conjunction with sister services and other security agencies was working assiduously to identify and arrest all those involved regardless of their disposition in the society including government functionaries.
He said, “We would like to unequivocally reiterate that the Army Headquarters warns the arsonists and the killers to stop or face decisive action by troops. Our Rules of Engagement (ROE) is clear on arson and murder, therefore, no such criminal acts would be allowed in any of the aforementioned states.
“The public are please reminded that when troops are called out for internal security operations, they are not to joke or persuade anyone. We have warned our commanders on the ground to take decisive actions or face court martial.”
